Well-being of individuals with DCD and their family

Background: Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD/dyspraxia) is a movement coordination disorder that affects fine and gross motor coordination skills.

Problems can manifest in a wide range of areas such as riding a bike, participating in sports, or affecting general well-being.

Aim: In this study, we are trying to understand if/how DCD impacts on the psychological well-being of adults with DCD and their close relatives (parents, children and siblings).


Taking part in the study requires completing a short online survey which asks general questions about oneself, one's family and DCD.


Participants Wanted:


We are looking for the following people to take part:

  • Adults (19+) with DCD

  • Parents of individuals (19+) with DCD

  • Siblings (16+) of individuals (19+) with DCD

  • Here, if you have DCD and are over 19 years

  • Here, if you are the parent of an adult with DCD

  • Here, if you are over 16 years, and the sibling of an adult with DCD
