About the Author

Morven F. Ball worked in the paediatric field as an occupational therapist for over ten years and had a particular interest in the field of Developmental Coordination Disorder. Now a full-time mother to her three children, she continues to support and educate those with DCD through the Highland Developmental Coordination Disorder Group, a charitable organisation providing information, support and group activities for its members and their families.


This is a practical, pocketsize book giving many useful common- sense hints and ideas that can be used to optimise occupational performance of children with DCD. The book begins with a brief and simple description of what DCD is, and stresses the importance of using a positive approach with these children. -- Napot Journal
This book contains lots of useful information. The features of the condition - co-ordination, perceptual, organisational, language and behaviour difficulties - are clearly outlined. Tips are offered for schoolwork and personal care. The simple format and diagrams are generally user friendly. A list of useful contacts and resources is also included at the back of the publication. This is a useful book, and I'm sure many paediatric occupational therapists will find it worth recommending to parents even after long-awaited intervention has started. -- Afasic News
