Researchers in the Sport and Health Science department at the University of Exeter are running a project examining the motor coordination of children who suffer from movement difficulties. The project is funded by the Waterloo Foundation, and tests the benefits of an intervention that may help to improve motor coordination among children.
We are seeking 8-10 year old children who suffer with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) or other motor coordination problems – although they don’t have to have had a formal clinical diagnosis. In the first instance, we are looking to recruit children in the South West of the England, but provision could be made to extend this if there were sufficient numbers/groups that would be willing to take part in other areas of the UK.
If you are interested in taking part or to discuss the project in more detail then please contact Dr Mark Wilson (email: Dr Mark Wilson – phone 01392 722891) or Dr Sam Vine (email: Dr Sam Vine – phone 01392 722892).
