Feedback from our participants

"I have come to realise that MCD affects a wide range of children and in various ways. I have realised that for children with motor difficulties it is a struggle to carry out everyday tasks that we take for granted, such as sitting still when in class or pencil control. I am now more aware of the importance of identifying MCD at an early age.

In relation to the students I work with, I now have a much better understanding of the impact MCD can have on their emotional and behavioural well-being and how their social skills can also be greatly affected. I have also been able to see some similarities between the characteristics of MCD and those of my own specialism: dyslexia.

The issue that had most impact on me was my total ignorance of 'Motor Co-ordination Difficulties' as a condition in itself. I moved from a position of 'How is this relevant to me?' to 'This is relevant to anyone who works with children.' This represents a major adjustment in my attitude and understanding.
