You may of heard of Developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD). This has been suggested to be a subcomponent of praxis difficulties meaning it could be linked to a dysfunctional sensory foundation (as discussed above). In some cases there are children who have a functional sensory foundation and have difficulties with the pure motor components of completing an activity, and who would require a different approach for intervention.
Butterflies Occupational Therapy will complete a comprehensive assessment based on your young persons / adolescents everyday difficulties.
If required we have the Movement Assessment Battery for Children 2 (MABC2) which is the gold standard in testing, which would be used alongside sensory assessments (standardised and non-standardised). The MABC2 can be completed for children aged 3-16 years old. From there a formal report would be written which can be shared with relevant agencies as well as a plan of recommended intervention.
