Didactic approach in movement disorders





Movement, Specific Learning Disorders, Workshops, Corporeity, School


In recent years, scientific research has placed a great deal of attention on the observation of children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD). The severe difficulty in motor coordination that such children exhibit also particularly interferes with school performance and activities of daily living. In fact, symptoms of DCD occur already in the initial phase of development, but it is often not identified until school age, leaving out good opportunities for early intervention. These children have previously been described with a variety of terms such as developmental dyspraxia, minimal brain dysfunction, perceptual-motor dysfunction, physical embarrassment, or, more commonly, clumsy baby syndrome. The purpose of this work, in the light of the scientific framework illustrated, is to educate children with this syndrome to a motor creed that is able to improve their movement and consequently their ability to manage the body.
