Developmental coordination disorder (DCD), also known as Developmental Dyspraxia and Clumsy Child Syndrome is a chronic neurological disorder beginning in childhood that can affect planning of movements and co-ordination as a result of brain messages not being accurately transmitted to the body. Up to 50% of dyspraxics have ADHD. It may be diagnosed in the absence of other motor or sensory impairments like cerebral palsy,[10] muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease.
