FERREIRA, Tamiris et al. Opportunities in child motor development at home: bibliometric and scientometric review. J. Hum. Growth Dev. [online]. 2021, vol.31, n.1, pp. 125-144. ISSN 0104-1282.

INTRODUCTION: Child development comprises a complex and dynamic transformation process due to continuous and progressive interactions, which begins at conception. It involves aspects that permeate the child's physical growth, neurological, behavioral, cognitive, social, and affective maturation. OBJECTIVE: Analyze the characteristics of scientific literature about the use of the instrument Affordances in the home environment for motor development (AHEMD). METHODS: It is a bibliometric and scientometric review performed in January 2018, including primary studies in English, Portuguese, and Spanish. By searching the electronic databases Publisher Medline (PubMed), Latin American and Caribbean Literature in Health Sciences (LILACS), Elsevier SciVerse Scopus (SCOPUS), Web of Science Main Collection, Clarivate Analytics (WoS), and at Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO) RESULTS: 38 studies applied AHEMD to assess opportunities for motor development at home, of them 39.5% (n=15) with children aged 3 to 18 months and 60.5% (n = 23) with children aged 18 to 42 months. The majority (76.4%- n=29) of them from Brazil, 47.4% (n = 18) were cross-sectional studies, 50% in the period between 2014 and 2017 and 50% (n = 19) with multi-professional authorship. The evaluation was done with children of different characteristics, scenarios, and social contexts with scores of dimensions and overall classified from very weak to sufficient. CONCLUSION: The analysis of the studies concerning the application of AHEMD instrument shows a gap in longitudinal research in populations with clinical conditions, consistent with the notification issues of the information systems that indicate public health problems in the child population.
