Developmental Co-Ordination Disorder: Hints and Tips for the ActivitiesISBN: 9781843100904
Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD) is a term used to describe children who have difficulty with movement and specific aspects of learning, and includes dyspraxia, Asperger Syndrome and associated conditions. This booklet seeks to answer commonly-asked questions about DCD and presents information to aid parents, carers and professionals in selecting the best options for their child; sometimes correcting the little things can lead to big results. The author describes the features of DCD and provides practical solutions ranging from maintaining posture and personal care through to the more complex tasks of learning. Practical exercises to help improve the DCD child's motor and sensory skills are included, along with a list of useful addresses and resources.
