Dyspraxia

Difficulty thinking of, planning, organizing, 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. Dyspraxia is a sub-type of Sensory-Based Motor Disorder.
