Developmental Coordination Disorder

Developmental Coordination Disorder in Newcastle

Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is associated with a delay in a child’s motor skills and a difficulty in coordinating movements, that leads to the child experiencing difficulty performing everyday tasks. Children are often described as clumsy or awkward by their family and teachers.

Your physiotherapist will complete an assessment that includes looking at your childs walking, balance, coordination and strength as well as speaking to you and your child about their challenges and goals. Based on this information you will work together to establish a therapy plan which often involves specific skill training.
