Research on children with Developmental Coordination Disorder

Thank-you for visiting our webpage; we hope it gives you an insight into some of the research we are doing or have recently completed that focuses on individuals with DCD. It will also keep you to up to date with other relevant news.

Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a childhood condition characterized by difficulties with everyday motor tasks, such as dressing, handwriting and sports. Research suggests that children with DCD do not grow out of their difficulties with motor coordination and these problems often persist into adulthood. A UK study has indicated that approximately 2% of the population has DCD.

Our research group carries out a number of projects focusing on DCD, if you are interested in taking part in any of our research them please get in touch by clicking on the ‘get involved’ tab
