Purpose of review To summarize recent research on developmental coordination disorder (DCD), with particular attention to comorbidity and related questions of etiology. Recent findings Although a general consensus on the disorder definition exists, case identification in research studies remains problematic. Despite this, recent research has reported high levels of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder and internalizing disorders among children with poor motor coordination. These findings… 
Developmental coordination disorder
Abstract Affecting one in 20 children, developmental coordination disorder (DCD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder that impacts a child’s ability to learn motor skills and significantly

TLDR
It remains prudent to keep diagnostic groupings intact in the search for etiological linkages, and there are equally plausible hypotheses suggesting that consolidation, rather than splitting, of diagnoses is appropriate.
Developmental coordination disorder: a review and update.
TLDR
The history of various definitions leading up to the current definition of DCD, prevalence estimates for the disorder, etiology, common co-morbidities, the impact ofDCD on the child's life, and prognosis are reviewed.
Psychological Aspects of Developmental Coordination Disorder: Can We Establish Causality?
Developmental coordination disorder (DCD) is a highly prevalent, chronic disability, which significantly impacts a child’s ability to perform everyday motor-based tasks. Although first and foremost a
Mood impairments in adults previously diagnosed with developmental coordination disorder
TLDR
After controlling for their reduced level of weekly physical activity, the group with DCD reported significantly more symptoms of depression, state and trait anxiety than their peers, which has important implications for consideration of intervention in DCD and for investigation of the risk and protective factors at play in long-term outcome.
The relationship between poor motor skills and neurodevelopmental disorders

TLDR
The conventional Vestibular deficit theory that states that motor problems in a child with partial hearing originate in a damaged or poorly functioning vestibular system is questioned by the authors and the results suggest that children with cochlear inplants may be at particular risk where more complex motor control is required, as compared to children with hearing aids.
Clinical Characteristics in Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder with/or without Developmental Coordination Disorder Patients
Objectives : This study explored the clinical differences in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) patients with and without developmental coordination disorder (DCD). Methods :
Developmental coordination disorder: core sensori-motor deficits, neurobiology and etiology
TLDR
This review summarizes the current understanding of developmental coordination disorder in neuropsychology with a focus mainly on high level sensorimotor impairments, its etiology and its neural bases.
Psychological distress in children with developmental coordination disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
In conclusion, children identified on the basis of motor coordination problems through a population-based screen showed significantly more symptoms of depression and anxiety than typically developing children.
Motor and coordination difficulties in children with emotional and behavioural difficulties
ABSTRACT To date, very few studies have explored the incidence of motor impairment amongst children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties (social, emotional and mental health (SEMH);

TLDR
The main message of the paper is that, in order to understand the etiology and prognosis of DCD, the authors need to have a better understanding of its nature, which requires an awareness of the existence of subtypes and comorbidities.
DCD and ADHD: a genetic study of their shared aetiology.
TLDR
The aim of the present investigation was to examine the extent to which the shared aetiology is due to common genetic factors to both disorders and whether particular subtypes of each disorder were more linked than others.
A pilot study of psychopathology in Developmental Coordination Disorder.
TLDR
Further research is needed to understand the relationship between motor difficulties and emotional and behavioural symptoms; however, it is recommended that interventions for children with DCD should support mental health and behavioural problems as well as motor development.

TLDR
A small sample of children diagnosed for general or separation anxiety disorder and a control group of normal children tested confirmed an excessive sensitivity of anxiety disordered children to balance-challenging situations, which supports the notion of subclinical balance disorder in childhood anxiety.

TLDR
Investigating the cooccurrence of problems in activity level, attention, reading, writing and psychosocial adjustment of children with developmental coordination disorder revealed a high risk for these problems in nonreferred children with motor coordination problems.
[Motor skills and psychiatric disturbances in children].
TLDR
The high quota of obviously impaired and disturbed children reflects the general decline of motor skills and does not seem to be attributed to the demand for psychiatric treatment for children and youth.
Co–existing disorders in ADHD – implications for diagnosis and intervention
TLDR
It would not be appropriate to develop ADHD–services where clinicians would only have expertise in ADHD as such, and anyone working with children, adolescents and adults with ADHD would need to have training in general neuropsychiatry.
