Abstract

Purpose: The aim of this study was to evaluate the motor performance, activities of daily living and their relationship in children with developmental coordination disorder.

Subjects and Methods: Thirty seven cases with developmental coordination disorder and thirty five typically developing peers between the ages 9-10 were included as a control group in this study. The Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency Short Form (BOTMP-SF) was used to evaluate the motor performance, and the Functional Independence Measure for Children (WeeFIM) was used to evaluate the activities of daily living.

Results: Significant differences were found in activities of self care, bathing, and toiletting in favor of control group (p<0.05), and no differences were found in activities of eating, and dressing upper and lower body parts. Comprehension, and expression skills were significant in favor of the control group (p<0.05). No correlation was found between Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency total score and subgroups of WeeFIM for either group (p>0.05).

Discussion: Motor performance and activities of daily living can affect children with developmental coordination disorder but their correlation is controversial. Both domains should be taken into account when implementing effective interventions to promote independence
