SubjectLearning and Plasticity
The two most common congenital motor disorders Cerebral Palsy (CP) and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) collectively represent about 6-10% of the child population. These disorders have profound developmental consequences for the child and place him/her at a significant disadvantage or risk, particularly in view of recent societal changes to the educational system and the health care system. Moreover, these children face challenges in daily life beyond their compromised motor ability and that are related to cognitive skills and scholastic performance.
