Description

Understanding Motor Behaviour in Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) draws together current knowledge of DCD, also referred to as dyspraxia, in the context of motor behaviour. International experts offer an overview of theoretical and methodological issues relating to motor development, motor control, skill acquisition, the influence of biological factors, education and therapy. Grounding DCD research within motor behaviour and typical development is central to understanding the condition. This unique approach makes the book invaluable for students in developmental psychology, clinical psychology, movement science, physiotherapy, physical education, and special education needs.
