With as any as 10% of all children diagnosed with Dyspraxia or DCD each year within a school class, every teacher will come across a child who struggles to coordinate themselves during PE, who is slower than others to dress and undress or seems to trip and fall more frequently than their peers.

A simple motor screen can identify if a child has postural deficits, motor planning and sequencing difficulties or underpinning sensory processing disorder.

Motor screening assessments can be carried out on an individual basis or in a group session. The therapist will use a standardised motor skill screening assessment to help gather baseline data on skill levels.
