Developmental Coordination Disorder

We provide research-integrated diagnostic assessments for children with suspected  developmental coordination disorder.
Your team

Who are we?

Your team includes a developmental pediatrician and an occupational therapist. A research assistant will greet you and explain the research portion of the clinic and will seek your consent to participate.

What do we do?


  • provide diagnostic assessments for children aged 4-12 years
  • provide educational materials and recommendations
  • inform families of opportunities to participate in other DCD research studies
Your appointment

You will receive a call from our booking clerk to schedule your appointment.

You will receive a letter about your appointment and an invitation letter to participate in our research database. A consent form (and, if applicable, an assent form for your child) will also be included that describes the research in more detail.

What to do for your appointment:

  • have your child wear comfortable clothing and running shoes
  • wear or bring any eye glasses or hearing aids
  • continue with any medications
  • please bring any recent reports (e.g., occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychology, medical reports) and your child's most recent report card
