Geoff Platt's exercise program, tailored to help children with dyspraxia to overcome their symptoms, enjoy physical activities, and become as active as their friends and classmates, is now proven to be even more effective. This revised edition outlines the fun and easy-to-teach program, which focuses on familiar activities such as running, jumping and ball play, and explains how regular exercise routines can reduce weakness and improve motor skills, such as balance, timing and coordination. It includes extra session plans, incorporates new research, and adds a secondary stage to the exercise program, teaching the skills of praxis, planning movement and improving skills. This practical guide will be an essential resource for Physical Education teachers and non-specialist teachers of recreation and games classes who are looking to help children with dyspraxia to reduce weakness and improve motor skills, as well as parents.

Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a neuro-developmental disorder that affects one in every twenty children. Children with DCD have problems with motor coordination that make everyday tasks such as active play, writing, eating, and dressing difficult and frustrating. Despite how common this health condition is, DCD is often misunderstood and frequently goes undiagnosed. In Developmental Coordination Disorder and its Consequences, international experts on DCD from several disciplines present the latest evidence on the diagnosis, consequences, and neuropsychological underpinnings of the disorder. With chapters covering consequences related to mental health, social functioning, and physical health and activity, this collection is the most comprehensive volume to cover the health and social consequences of DCD in children. Clearly written, it will be of interest to parents, teachers, and physicians interested in this disorder.
