Developmental Coordination Disorder in Autism

Are you working with autistic children who exhibit motor difficulties? Are you curious to determine whether these motor difficulties stem from Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD)?

Join Priscila, a distinguished expert and researcher in motor development and DCD, in this illuminating seminar. She will provide you with the latest evidence on the difficulties with planning, processing and executing motor skills in autistic children. Recognizing and addressing these motor difficulties early on can significantly alter a child’s developmental trajectory. To this end, you will learn about assessment tools that can help pinpoint whether an autistic child has no motor difficulties (Profile 1), has motor difficulties due to DCD (Profile 2), or has motor difficulties that are not due to DCD (Profile 3).

You will then learn the International Clinical Practice Recommendations for DCD to highlight interventions that can work to address motor skills in autism, such as task-specific training and motor imagery training. Priscila will also impart her 5 tips for the successful application of these strategies for autistic children. Case studies will be utilized to enhance the practical application of the knowledge gained from this course.

Leave this seminar with evidence-informed tools and resources, ready to help determine and address motor challenges resulting from DCD in your autistic clients! Closed Captioned in English!
