Child Oral and Motor Proficiency Scale (ChOMPS)

Once the child begins to eat complimentary foods, oral feeding skills are more observably measured. To effectively eat, the child relies on developing fine and gross motor skills; therefore, these skills are also measured by the ChOMPS to identify the full range of motor skills needed for effective eating. The ChOMPS has 63 items and 4 subscales: Complex Movement Patterns, Basic Movement Patterns, Oral-Motor Coordination, and Fundamental Oral-Motor Skills. Since the ChOMPS measures child abilities, parents score each item on a 3-point scale (Yes, Sometimes, Not Yet). Total and total subscale scores are derived with higher scores indicating more skill. Percentiles and T scores represented by the total and subscale scores are provided in the ChOMPS Scoring Guidelines.
