Dr. Cameron :

Developmental coordination disorder (DCD) also known as Developmental Dyspraxiaand Clumsy Child Syndrome is a chronic neurological disorder that first starts in childhood and it appears to affect planning of movements and co-ordination. It is believed to be a result of brain messages not being accurately transmitted to the body

Dr. Cameron :

Now treatment revolves around physical therapy and occupational therapy

Dr. Cameron :

There is no medication which has been proven to help, but the earlier the treatment, the better off you are

Dr. Cameron :

That being said, it is better to start now than never

Dr. Cameron :

There are many famous people with this, including Daniel Radcliffe (actor), charlotte bronte, emily bronte, ernest hemingway and... my partner (thought is isn't famous- it never stopped him! :-) )

Dr. Cameron :

*though he isn't famous!

Dr. Cameron :

I hope that this helped.

Dr. Cameron :
