DEVELOPMENTAL COORDINATION DISORDER IN CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS $100.00
Authors:  Andreas D. Flouris
Abstract:
Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a term used to describe a condition
of motor incoordination found in children. Prevalence estimates for DCD obtained
internationally indicate that about 6 to 10% of the school-aged population may be
affected. Despite the high prevalence rates, a systematic review of the literature reveals
that data have been mainly reported for north America and northern Europe. Recent
evidence shows that DCD has a significant physiological impact on children’s health and
well-being. Specifically, it has been found that children with DCD are at increased risk
for developing coronary artery disease at a later age. This has been attributed to the fact
that children with DCD systematically avoid being active. Thus participation in physical
activity has been suggested as a significant mediator in the relationship between
clumsiness and coronary artery disease. These findings underline the necessity to identify
individuals with DCD early in life, in order to prevent many of the secondary problems
that may arise in later years. The factor contributing the most to the scarcity of DCD data
is the challenge of screening/identification of children with this disorder. To date, no
gold-standard has been universally recognized. Furthermore, widely accepted screening
methods such as the Bruininks Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, or the Movement
Assessment Battery for Children, are neither practical nor cost-effective. A solution to
this problem may be found in the Children’s Self-Perceptions of Adequacy in and
Predilection for Physical Activity (CSAPPA) scale. However, further investigation of the
validity and precision of the CSAPPA scale in different populations is required.
