  1. Describe Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and associated co-concurrent conditions.

  2. List how gross motor, fine motor, and oculomotor deficits can interfere with motor learning, skill development, and functional performance.

  3. Identify specific visual-perceptual-motor activities that are meaningful in home, school, and community environments for children with DCD.
