Risk factors for sport injury in elementary school children: are children with developmental coordination disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder at greater risk of injury? - Tan B, Carnduff R, McKay C, Kang J, Romiti M, Nasuti G, Hurtubise K, Jarus T, Boyd L, Doyle-Baker P, Wilson B, Emery C.

BACKGROUND: Studies examining risk factors for sport injury in elementary school children are few. The risk of sport injury in special populations including Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) has n...

Conclusion: Children with DCD showed significant improvement in white matter microstructure in the bilateral anterior thalamic radiation, bilateral sensorimotor tract, bilateral cingulum, fornix, splenium and body of corpus callosum, right inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus, and white matter pathways to bilateral inferior gyri, right middle frontal gyrus, frontal medial cortex, and left cuneus. We suggest that these rehabilitation-induced neural changes in children with DCD occurred in regions associated with attention, self-regulation, motor planning, and inter-hemispheric communication, which positively affected brain ...

AbstractPurpose of Review(1) To give an overview of what is currently known about health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in three common and co-occurring developmental disorders: attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorders (ASD), and developmental coordination disorder (DCD), and (2) to provide directions for future research.Recent FindingsHRQoL is compromised in all three developmental disorders, affecting various domains of HRQoL. However, some domains are more affected than others depending on the nature of the core deficits of the disorder. Overall, parents ’ rate HRQoL of their chi...

AbstractStudies have suggested that unaffected siblings of patients with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have some other neurodevelopmental abnormalities. However, the risks of mental and developmental disorders have rarely been investigated among unaffected siblings. Using Taiwan ’s National Health Insurance Research Database, 1304 unaffected siblings born between 1980 and 2010 with ASD probands and 13,040 age-/sex-/family structure-matched controls were included in our study and followed up from 1996 or birth to the end of 2011. Developmental delay, language delay, develo pmental coordination disorder, attention-def...

Child Psychiatry Hum Dev. 2021 Apr 9. doi: 10.1007/s10578-021-01155-0. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDevelopmental coordination disorder (DCD) is often comorbid with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). While children with DCD engage in less moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) compared to typically developing (TD) children, research pertaining to how ADHD affects this relationship is limited. We investigated the effect of ADHD on MVPA among children at risk for DCD (DCDr). 507 children aged 4-5 years (DCDr = 233, TD = 274) participated. Motor skills were assessed using the Movement Assessment Battery ...

Discussion: Improvisational music therapy in children with NDDs appears relevant for individuals with both ASD and ID. More research should be encouraged to explore whether oral and written language skills may improve after educational music therapy, as preliminary data are encouraging.

Developmental Coordination Disorder and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder are unique neurodevelopmental disorders with overlaps in executive functions and motor control. The conditions co-occur in up to 50% of cases, raising questions of the pathological mechanisms of DCD versus ADHD. Few studies have examined these overlaps in adults with DCD and/or ADHD. Therefore, to provide insights about executive functions and motor control between adults with DCD, ADHD, both conditions (DCD + ADHD), or typically developed controls, this study used a stop-signal task and parallel EEG measurement. We assessed executive performa...

In conclusion, treating dysgraphia using child–robot interaction is feasible and improves writing. Larger clinical studies are required to confirm that children with dysgraphia could benefit from this setup.
