DCD / Dyspraxia Research Study

The Motor Development and Impact Lab (MoDI Lab) at the University of Surrey would like to invite you to volunteer for an online study investigating how individuals with dyspraxia or DCD control their actions. This includes movements, learning and decision-making processes. Have you ever thought about your efforts when performing daily activities to make sure that you perform to the best of your ability? How do you stop your difficulties from getting in the way? Is it just about your movements, or does it affect other activities such as learning and decision making? These are some of the questions that the new study is hoping to address in both children and adults with dyspraxia or DCD. If you are interested maybe you can volunteer and contribute to this project. You can volunteer to take part yourself or with your child/children. ...read more
