Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)

The child with DCD (dyspraxia) has difficulty thinking of, planning, sequencing and/or executing skilled movements especially novel movement patterns, which limits the performance of motor skills. Children may present with repetitive behaviors or restrict themselves to a few simple movement paradigms such as lining up toys or throwing. They often have difficulty imitating (as in Simon Says) and/or following directions for movement and appear clumsy.
