A chronic neurological condition, developmental coordination disorder (DCD) affects movement planning and coordination. This is due to the lack of accuracy of brain message transmission to the body and is diagnosed in the absence of other conditions like Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy etc. Apart from physical impairments, DCD also causes mental challenges like memory problems. Some common issues include

  • Difficulty remembering instructions
  • Difficulty organizing one's time and remembering deadlines
  • increased chances of losing things
  • Problems carrying out tasks which require remembering several steps in sequence

People who have developmental coordination disorder may also have one or more of these co-morbid conditions:

•    Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

•    Autism spectrum disorder

•    Dyscalculia

•    Dysgraphia

•    Dyslexia

•    Hypotonia

•    Sensory processing disorder

•    Specific language impairment (SLI)
