Current projects:


Cross-cultural comparison of the Little DCD-Q.

Collaborators: Rihtman, T., Parush, S. (University of Tel-Aviv, Israel) & Wilson, B.N (Calgary Health Centre, Canada), M.H. Cantell (University of Groningen, The Netherlands).

Aim of the study: To investigate the reliability and validity of the Little Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire as a screening tool for the early identification of motor delay in children between ages 3-4.11.


Variability of upper extremity motor task performance in typically developing children and children with DCD.

Collaborators: R. Bongers; N. Mouton

Aim of the study: The aims of the study are twofold: 1. To examine changes in functional and non-functional variability in motor performance during development in typically developing children of 6-10 years of age. 2. To examine differences in functional and non-functional variability in motor performance between typically developing children and children with Developmental Coordination Disorder.
