Sugden and Wade, leading authors in this area, comprehensively cover motor development and motor impairment, drawing on sources in medicine and health-related studies, motor learning and developmental psychology. A theme that runs through the book is that movement outcomes are a complex transaction of child resources, the context in which movement takes place, and the manner in which tasks are presented. The core themes of the book involve descriptions of motor development from conception through to emerging adulthood, explanations of motor development from differing theoretical, empirical, and experiential perspectives, and descriptions and explanations of atypical motor development when the resources of the child are limited in some way. The book includes descriptions of motor development from conception through to emerging adult. Chapters on cerebral palsy, development coordination disorder (DCD), intellectual disability and visual impairment explore the issues in depth, proving the ideal coverage of the topic for occupational therapists, physiotherapists, paediatricians and teachers.
