The book is user-friendly and includes clear diagrams in each section, along with tables to outline key points. I found these very useful and they are an easy reference/ reminder, for example, they include a normal development chart, what assessments are available and their main aims.'

The practical information contained in this book would be a useful addition to any paediatric therapy department or school library, for both students and professionals involved in the management of chidren with these disabilities. -- Phisiotherapy
The seven chapters are short and well-structured and written in an accessible style for the professional and non-professional reader alike. Illustrations and bullet points are used throughout which make the content accessible and user friendly. I would recommend the book to students, newly qualified therapists and therapists returning to work in the area, as well as parents aand teachers of children with motor co-ordination delay, with some provisos. -- Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation
