The Movement ABC-2 Test is internationally recognised as ‘the gold standard’ for identifying children with motor difficulties. Prof Anna Barnett’s revision and development has provided health and education professionals with a reliable assessment tool, improving the support for children and their families. This test is recommended in the latest European guidelines on Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) - a condition recognised as having a major impact on the lives of children - and has also been translated into several languages for global use. The parallel development of specific tests for handwriting (DASH and DASH17+) for children and adults has provided clinicians and teachers with the tools to help support students with their class work and written examinations.
