SASC (SpLD Assessment Standards Committee)

March 2012 ‘In order to reach a conclusion of DCD/dyspraxia the assessor must provide evidence of a history of motor co-ordination difficulties, and it is vital therefore that a detailed case history is taken (including difficulties as a child). The assessor should explore these through the use of an in-depth interview and/or questionnaire. The assessor can therefore form an opinion about these based on the student’s responses’.

New guidance by David Grant on DCD March 2013

Contribution by David Grant ” There was agreement ….. that in determining whether an adult has DCD the only valid approach – currently  – is that of taking a detailed life history.  There was also agreement that questions should be open-ended ones.   As my contribution to this I attach the areas I routinely cover when taking a life history”.
