Developmental or co-ordination difficulties can be common and may be part of the typical development curve for a child. However, it may also be due to a condition known commonly as Dyspraxia / Developmental Co-ordination Disorder (DCD). A child may have difficulties with their fine and gross motor skills, examples can include problems doing up buttons, being able to hop, catch or balance well. If we feel that the difficulties are significant, we can ask your GP to refer on to a paediatrician or another service,
