METHOD: In 600 children (aged 3-10 y), PA during physical education lessons, locomotor skills, object...

BACKGROUND: Children with motor impairments also show poor performance in some executive functions' components. However, there is no consensus on which specific executive subdomain is more impacted. AIM: The objective of this study was to compare executive functions in children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD), at risk for DCD (r-DCD), and in typically developing (TD) children. METHODS AND PROCEDURES: A sample of 397 children was assessed using the MABC-2. Two groups of children we...

Abstract Aim The objectives of this study were: 1) to compare the perceptions of self-efficacy in the daily activities (self-care, schoolwork, and leisure) of boys and girls with DCD, or in children at risk for DCD (r-DCD) and in typical children (TD); 2) to investigate if a self-efficacy assessment could be a support tool in the establishment of children with the DCD profile. Methods Children between 6 to 8 years old (N=115: 35 with DCD, 40 with r-DCD, 40 with TD) were assessed using the Moveme...

The decrease in children motor competence, with a consequent reduction in the levels of physical activities and fitness, impacting health negatively, has affected children across countries. In addition to consistent intervention strategies, it is necessary to use appropriate instruments. The Korperkoordinationstest Fur Kinder (KTK) is a reliable and low-cost motor coordination test used in several countries but lacking psychometric evidence for the Brazilian population. The present study investi...
