Description, Diagnosis and Intervention
This is an evidence-based manual of diagnosis and interventions for
helping children between three and six years old who lack a
complete range of fundamental movement skills.
The book outlines the difficulties young children have with
movement, especially developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) and
explains their assessment, using especially the early years motor
skills checklist (EYMSC), a unique instrument aimed especially at
children three to six years old. The management of the condition is
then discussed, giving particular attention to the Special
Education Needs Code of Practice. Finally the book explores the
notion of a developmental coach, suggesting that parents and carers
are the most appropriate individuals to fill this role.
