There are many different terms used to describe co-ordination difficulties: developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD), dyspraxia, perceptual-motor dysfunction and clumsy child syndrome.  Examples of possible symptoms are:
  • delay in reaching their milestones such as sitting, crawling, standing and walking
  • poor balance and a difficulty standing on one leg, hopping or jumping
  • difficulty with ball activities such as throwing, catching, kicking
  • a dislike or difficulty with Physical Training periods
  • an inability or difficulty riding a bicycle
  • often bumping into people or falling or tripping
  • difficulty to sit still
  • difficulty organizing dressing and undressing, often putting clothes on back-to-front
  • they may appear to not try or make an effort with tasks 
If you suspect your child has a developmental coordination disorder and aren't sure of the underlying cause, a Sensory and Motor Assessment would help identify whether there are sensory/motor issues or not. If issues related to Sensory integration are detected, providing sensory integration therapy can prove useful in increasing the learning abilities of such children.
