Brief Summary:
Children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) have difficulties performing daily activities which reflects negatively on participation, impacting their lives. To date, there are a number of interventions to improve performance of these children on activities they want or need to. In Brazil, there is little research on the efficacy of such approaches. Our main objective was to start a set of studies to examine the effects of the Cognitive Orientation to Daily Occupational Performance Approach (CO-OP Approach) protocol on occupational performance and satisfaction of Brazilian children who have DCD; to examine whether children were able to transfer strategies and skills learned during CO-OP to untrained goals.

Detailed Description:
Background. Children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) have difficulties performing daily activities which reflects negatively on participation, impacting their lives. Objectives. To examine the effects of the Cognitive Orientation to Daily Occupational Performance Approach (CO-OP Approach) protocol on occupational performance and satisfaction of Brazilian children who have DCD; to examine whether children were able to transfer strategies and skills learned during CO-OP to untrained goals. Methods. A pre-post group comparison design with eight boys aged 6-10 years old. Children participated in 12 CO-OP sessions with their parents twice a week, with an extra session added to the protocol for parents´ orientation. The Canadian Occupational Performance Measure and the Performance Quality Rating Scale were used as outcome measures.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cognitive Orientation to daily Occupational Performance
One group was submitted to the CO-OP approach to learn cognitive strategies to perform the chosen tasks.
Behavioral: Cognitive Orientation to Daily Occupational Performance
In CO-OP Approach, therapists use mediational techniques to teach cognitive strategies - GOAL, PLAN, DO, CHECK - to improve occupational performance in goals chosen by the children in collaboration with them and their parents.
Other Name: CO-OP Approach




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Canadian Occupational Performance Measure [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
    Change on performance and satisfaction on goals chosen by each child

  2. Performance Quality Rating Scale [ Time Frame: up to 12 weeks ]
    Change on occupational performance on goals chosen by each child as measured by external evaluators
