What do we really know about motor learning in children with Developmental Coordination Disorder?

Abstract : There is a general consensus that developmentalcoordination disorder (DCD) is characterized by impaired motor learning skills. However, actual studies of motor learningin DCD are scarce and, above all, inconsistent. The aims of the present study were therefore to explore the presumed presence a motor learning deficit among individuals with DCD and to provide a synopsis of the current literature on motor learning in DCD. We begin by defining DCD (etiology, neuropsychology, and brain bases), motor learning (measurement of learning, methods for promoting skill acquisition, scheduling,practice, retention, and feedback) and, of course, the link be-tween the two, focusing on the issue of a possible motor learning deficit in DCD. We then discuss dominant hypotheses andsuggest directions for future research in this domain, in thelight of research conducted thus far. Particular attention is paid throughout to guide the choice of intervention approaches.
