dc.description.abstractAttentional issues may be a contributing factor to poor static and dynamic postural control for many children with DCD, particularly since many of them may have a dual diagnosis with ADHD. To date, only a few investigations have examined the impact of attention on static balance, with the majority of them involving only traditional measures of balance. However, there has been no research attempting to examine such issues in the context of dynamic postural adaptations. As a result, the purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of attentional loading on static balance control and postural adaptations in children with and without DCD, using traditional and non-traditional descriptors of the center of pressure (COP).en_US
