Description

Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a neuro-developmental disorder that affects one in every twenty children. Children with DCD have problems with motor coordination that make everyday tasks such as active play, writing, eating, and dressing difficult and frustrating. Despite how common this health condition is, DCD is often misunderstood and frequently goes undiagnosed.

In Developmental Coordination Disorder and its Consequences, international experts on DCD from several disciplines present the latest evidence on the diagnosis, consequences, and neuropsychological underpinnings of the disorder. With chapters covering consequences related to mental health, social functioning, and physical health and activity, this collection is the most comprehensive volume to cover the health and social consequences of DCD in children. Clearly written, it will be of interest to parents, teachers, and physicians interested in this disorder.
