The Family Activity Scale

The Family Activity Scale

The Family Activity Scale is a valuable assessment tool designed to examine the environment and level of engagement provided for children within their family. It offers practitioners an opportunity to explore joint activities and support for independent activities, shedding light on the cultural and ideological context in which children are raised.

This assessment tool encompasses various aspects, such as the interaction between carers and children, including their response to children’s actions and their encouragement of play and independence. It aims to provide insights into the quality of family dynamics and the extent to which children are actively involved in age-appropriate activities.

The Family Activity Scale consists of two separate scales: one tailored for children aged 2-6 and another for children aged 7-12. This age-specific approach ensures that the assessment captures the developmental needs and experiences of children within each age group.
