Tuesday, May 16th
Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) is a formal mental health condition that has a prevalence rate of 5-6%. Yet, because of lack of knowledge and awareness of DCD, this condition is frequently overlooked or misdiagnosed by doctors, psychologists and other mental health professionals. Learn why it is important to know about this diagnosis and how to look for the ‘signs’ of this condition when working with school-aged children.
Presenter: Dr. Paulene Kamps
Dr. Kamps is a registered psychologist, certified teacher, kinesiologist and author who considers herself an educator about and advocate for people who are dealing with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).
