    Description

    In the proposed study, we will pioneer the treatment of both COG control and leg muscular deficit in children with DCD by incorporating MPT into TC. We hypothesize that the LOS of balance control in these children can best be improved by treating both their COG control and muscular deficits. This hypothesis is supported by the prediction that TC-MPT is superior to either TC or MPT alone in improving LOS balance performance. Furthermore, improved LOS is associated with fewer fall incidents and better functional performance in children with DCD.
