This pilot study compared a new treatment approach, the Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance (CO-OP) to the Contemporary Treatment Approach (CTA) to treating children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). CO-OP emphasises problem-solving strategies and guided discovery of child and task specific strategies. CTA encompasses a(More)

Because little is understood about the etiology of the disorder, treatment design has been driven by competing theories of motor development and motor skill acquisition. Traditional(More)
This study investigated developmental increases in processing speed in young children, relative to adults, with only nonverbal stimuli. R. Kail's (1991) model of the rate of change in processing speed from childhood to adulthood was evaluated. Processing speed was measured in 34 children at 4 years, 37 at 5 years, and 38 at 6 years and in 43 adults, with a(More)
The validity of self-reports of 48 adults with mental retardation of daily living competency using the recently revised Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales (Sparrow, Balla, & Cicchetti, 1984) was investigated. Self-report was compared to standard Vineland interviews of subjects' program counselors and to demonstrated competency in a real-life setting. On(More)
Reading fluency beyond decoding is a limitation to many children with developmental reading disorders. In the interest of remediating dysfluency, contributing factors need to be explored and understood in a developmental framework. The focus of this study is orthographic processing in developmental dyslexia, and how it may contribute to reading fluency. We(More)
