Developmental coordination disorder (DCD) (formerly called dyspraxia) is a condition where individuals have problems with coordination (appearing clumsy and awkward) to the point where it causes them problems at home, at school and everywhere else.  It is important to identify this disorder because there are interventions (i.e. seeing a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, making adjustments at school) that can help.  Children and young people who have this disorder but are not properly identified are at risk of future problems at school, in relationships, and of developing depression and emotional difficulties.
