Objective: Movement is a continuous aspect of life and an important factor to achieve the goals and meet the needs. Precise assessment of gross and fine motor skills, simplifies the diagnosis and treatment of motor disorders. Hence this study was implemented in order to investigate the motor development in Infants of Hamadan.

Materials & Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted through descriptive-analytic procedures, 124 infants were selected using randomized cluster sampling in health care centers of Hamadan. Peabody Developmental Motor Scales (PDMS) was the means of gathering the data. The analysis was implemented through SPSS-16.

Results: The results showed that there was no significant difference between the fine and gross motor on gender, type of childbirth, childbirth order, history of father / mother’s smoking Moreover there is positive relationship between age and gross/fine motor development (quotient) (P<0.001).

Conclusion: The mean motor age and motor development quotient were of normal range. Hence, motor training programs are recommended in order to facilitate the motor development of the above – mentioned infants.
