CEU Course Description
Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder, characterized by a delayed and immature motor ability, which noticeably affects everyday activities. Sensorimotor therapy is an option to drive physical therapy treatment of this disorder, including aberrant primary reflex assessment and integration, vestibular assessment and stimulation, and auditory perceptual assessment and stimulation. The goals of this CEU course are to compare healthy children in terms of sensorimotor maturity to untreated children diagnosed with DCD and compare healthy children to diagnosed children following completed treatment with sensorimotor therapy. The study includes 298 children in four age groups: 5 years, 8 years, 10 years, and 13 years, and included a norm group as well as group of children with DCD. The three instruments used to detect sensorimotor deviations are the Retraining for Balance-Physiological Test, Retraining for Balance-Orientation and Balance Test, and Retraining for Balance-Audiometric Test.
