Prevalence of Developmental Co-ordination Disorder in School Children.


:Developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) is a hidden complex childhood disorder seen in school aged children. There are only few Indian literatures supporting the prevalence of DCD among Indian school children but this current research has attempted to make a confirmatory diagnosis of DCD. Objective of the study was to estimate the prevalence rate of DCD among school children. This study was designed as cross-sectional study; sample size was 944 students. Outcome measure used was Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders fifth edition (DSM V) criteria. On screening 944 children the overall prevalence rate was 3.8% (36). The gender wise distribution showed more male children were affected compared to female children. Age wise distribution showed a higher prevalence rate between the age group 9 to 14 y. This study yielded a comprehensive, well controlled overview in the prevalence of DCD, therefore early diagnosis is now a great concern and areas of theoretical, and clinical importance should be considered.
