While organized sporting activities will likely be challenging, there are many activities in which children with DCD can become successful, such as swimming, skating, cycling, and skiing.

Abstract
Written in Italian, this booklet is designed to help parents and educators identify and manage school-aged
children who are demonstrating movement problems typical of children with Developmental
Coordination Disorder (DCD). Based on research evidence, the purpose of this booklet is to
describe common characteristics of children with motor coordination difficulties, to provide
guidance for seeking a referral to a physician, to describe the role of occupational therapists and
physiotherapists who may work with these children, and to suggest modifications that may
improve the ability of children to function at home, at school, and in the community.

Abstract
Safe and healthy behaviour occurs largely as a result of social skill competencies and social inclusion. The policies in this guide focus on building said competencies by providing means of addressing specific skill and environmental deficits of individual residents. It is the intention of these policies to reflect human relationships and sexuality as a source of human fulfillment and joy. In light of this understanding, loving relationships and sexuality are reflected in these policies as human rights. They include: freedom from sexual stereotyping; freedom from sexual oppression; freedom of information; freedom to control one's own body and freedom to express affection.
