Description of Movement-Based Intervention

Movement-based approached have been classified as task-oriented interventions and focus on children's 'occupations,' such as tying shoelaces, ball catching, and handwriting. Children with developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) have difficulty performing coordinated motor skills required for self-care, social activities, and academic achievement (Miyahara, Hillier, Pridham, & Nakagawa, 2017). Low muscle tone is a core feature of DCD as most children have low tone in their trunk, making stable sitting difficult and creates movement challenges while in the classroom (About Causes, n.d.).
