Inhibition (Response Inhibition – RI and Interference Control – IC) have been inconsistently examined in Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) with response modalities often not considered.
To examine RI and IC in children with DCD.
Twenty-five children 6-10 years with DCD, plus 25 matched typically developing peers completed motor and verbal RI and IC tasks.
Children with DCD made significantly more errors in the motor and verbal RI tasks, had slower movement time and RT in the motor IC task, and longer completion time in the verbal IC task.
Children with DCD have RI and IC difficulties in motor and verbal responses.
