At least 15% of the U.S. population may have some form of learning disability (LD). Although issues with clumsiness have been observed in children with LD, motor coordination and proficiency are often overlooked in identifying children at risk. This presentation will explore research on the connections between motor coordination and LD, drawing on the speaker’s own research and will conclude with practical strategies for physical educators that may help identify children at risk for LD.
