**JUNE 2024 course ONLINE**
Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), also known as Dyspraxia, is a prevalent neurodevelopmental condition. Despite its common occurrence, it often goes unrecognised due to the hidden and diverse range of challenges experienced by children and adolescents affected by it. This comprehensive course aims to present the latest research evidence on the assessment of DCD/Dyspraxia, its impact on physical, social, and emotional health outcomes, as well as effective goal setting and outcome measures. By equipping allied health professionals with this knowledge, they will be better equipped to provide valuable support to children, families, and educators dealing with DCD/Dyspraxia. Through a deeper understanding of this condition and evidence-based practices, professionals can enhance the well-being and quality of life for those affected, fostering a more inclusive and supportive environment for children and adolescents with DCD/Dyspraxia.
This online training programme is aimed at Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Psychologists interested in learning more about using an evidence-informed approach towards assessment of DCD/Dyspraxia for children.
