Overview of Developmental Coordination Disorder (the clumsy child syndrome) - Motor skills are typically acquired in a continuous, progressive, orderly process. Normal motor function requires the coordination of neurologic, physiologic, and biologic processes including proprioception, vestibular integration, strength, balance, coordination, dexterity, visual-motor ability, and visual ability. Individual and environmental factors, such as motivation, perseverance, opportunity for practice, and encouragement, also play a role. Problems in any of these areas can result in lack of motor skills, or clumsiness. 3/5
