Co-ordination and physical difficulties can take different forms. Weakness in fine motor skills makes it hard to direct small muscles groups like fingers. Weakness in gross motor skills affects large muscle groups in the body such as legs. And trouble with hand-eye co-ordination can make things like buttoning a shirt difficult.

Even if a child doesn't have a diagnosis there are things you can be aware of to help improve and support a co-ordination and physical problem if you can't find something specific to your enquiry in our resources please contact your locality direct.
