Motor Coordination Disorders in Children

August 1998 | 144 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
In the last several decades the amount of research focusing on children with motor coordination disorder has steadily risen. In Motor Coordination Disorders in Children, the authors examine the available literature on the topic using their knowledge of childrenÆs motor development. They explore the nature of the disorder, developmental progressions, associated features, and long-term prognosis. The book was written to benefit teachers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, and pediatricians who often work with children labeled as ôclumsyö or ômaladroit.ö Topics covered include what motor coordination disorders look like, how they are assessed, the nature of the disorder, and its development, progression, and intervention. The first volume of its kind, Motor Coordination Disorders in Children will be a valuable resource for professionals and students in clinical and counseling psychology, developmental psychology, nursing, social work, and family studies.
