THE SOURCE FOR DEVELOPMENTAL COORDINATION DISORDER (DCD)
A childhood disorder characterized by poor coordination and clumsiness
In this book, experienced psychologist and DCD specialist, Dr. Kamps uses scenarios, stories, sample psycho-educational assessment results, and other examples to introduce and provide context and general information about DCD.
Using research findings as gleaned from international DCD scholars, Dr. Kamps goes on to explain how early motor difficulties can result in communication problems, emotional outbursts, difficult behaviours, and academic and psychosocial issues.
Written in an easily accessible format (for parents, teachers, and others) this book provides a good overview about motor skill acquisition and development, and various childhood conditions that are related to motor problems (e.g., Asperger's, nonverbal learning disability, and DCD).
For individuals wanting to investigate and learn more about DCD, this book also contains numerous checklists (identifying the many signs and symptoms of DCD), early DCD references, and practical ideas and help for individuals dealing with incoordination.
