DCD + Dyspraxia

  • Developmental Co-ordination Disorder + Dyspraxia What is Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (D.C.D.)?

    This is the condition when the performance in daily activities that require motor co-ordination is well below that expected for the person’s age and measured intelligence (DSM-IV, 1994). It can be shown by marked delays in reaching milestones (e.g. sitting, crawling, walking, hopping, jumping,) dropping things, a general clumsiness, poor performance in sports or handwriting and interference with academic or activities of daily living. It is often referred to as an umbrella term for all children showing a co-ordination difficulty.
