    i only have one link which is a form for pediatric assessment and i don't know how much help it would be for you.

    http://www.hospitalsoup.com/public/p...assessment.pdf - pediatric assessment sheet (kind of old)- the last page, however, has a good assessment of the patient by age appropriate behavior for a child

    in general, you still want to follow the same guidelines in doing a physical assessment that you do with adults with some special attention to developmental goals that should have been reached by the child at certain ages. i don't have anything else except for newborn assessment. try going into the links for assessment listed on this thread:

    http://allnurses.com/forums/f205/hea...ms-145091.html - health assessment resources, techniques, and forms (in nursing student assistance forum)

    there are a number of links there to medical schools that have videos.
