Motor response inhibition in adults with / without developmental coordination disorder


Research has shown that children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) demonstrate difficulties inhibiting motor responses. This difficulty has been measured as both slower task completion times, and also less accurate performance on inhibition tests. However, little research has been done on the inhibitory control of adults with DCD, and how inhibition difficulties may play a role in DCD in adulthood.

We are recruiting adults aged 18+ with and without a diagnosis of DCD/Dyspraxia. Unfortunately, we cannot include participants with any additional or secondary diagnoses. Participation will consist of a single session at the University of Surrey, which will take approximately 90 minutes.
