Development of Movement Coordination in Children

This important new book is the first text on motor learning and control to focus exclusively on the development of movement coordination in children. It is also the first book to bring together in one volume both cognitive and ecological-psychological approaches to the subject. Based on cutting-edge theory and research, the book explores how children develop coordination within three real-world settings: everyday behaviour, including studies on spoon use, handwriting and posture; movement disorder, including studies of perceptual motor behaviour of children with Down's Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy; sporting activity, including studies of catching and throwing behaviour. The book therefore makes a unique contribution to our understanding of the development of children. It will be essential reading for all those with a particular interest in movement coordination within the fields of sport science, health science and ergonomics, as well as all psychologists, developmentalists, educators and clinicians working with children.
