Developmental Coordination Disorder: Neural Correlates and Neuroplasticity with Rehabilitation

This study focuses on the differences in the brain development in children with DCD compared to typically-developing children and whether the brain changes in response to rehabilitation, using Cognitive Orientation to Occupational Performance (CO-OP) approach. In CO-OP, children learn how to discover and solve their own movement problems for activities they want to learn by talking themselves through the steps to achieve their goal. Therapists help children to figure out what might be interfering with their motor performance and determine a plan with the child to solve the problem.

How Developmental Coordination Disorder Affects Daily Life: the Adolescent Experience

The purpose of this study is to gain a deeper understanding of how developmental coordination disorder (DCD) impacts daily life across the teen years from the adolescent perspective. Results from this study will increase our understanding of the unique needs and challenges of this population and will be helpful in informing clinical practice and providing adequate support to adolescents with DCD.
