We all as children were taught to do menial, simple tasks by elder people, like walking or jumping or even brushing our teeth. No matter how small they seem to us now, then they were milestones to be accomplished. These milestones are expected to be achieved at the right age or even early, however, in some cases children tend to reach them later and require more effort than normal.

This could be because of a condition caused by Dyspraxia or Developmental Coordination Disorder(DCD) and a major part of this is Motor Planning Disorder.

Understanding Motor Planning Disorder

When we perform a particular activity, let’s say walking, it comes automatically to us at this point. But it wasn’t there in us since we were born, we had to be taught how to do it. This teaching helped our brain plan how to execute it and with time it became like a reflex to us. But our brain still has to plan everything before executing it.

This skill allows the brain to deduce different steps required to bring about a particular motion, no matter how small it is. This skill is undeveloped or lacking in some children which makes it difficult for them to achieve motor-related milestones or delays them.

This difficulty is termed Motor Planning Disorder, which unfortunately has no medical cure. But that doesn’t mean that your child is going to have difficulties. There is Motor Planning Therapy to aid children having difficulty in motor planning.

Therapy can beat the disorder

Professional occupational therapists are skilled in performing therapy which can help kids to improve their motor planning ability. These therapies can help your kid overcome the difficulty of Motor Planning and improve their motor skills. Although Motor Planning Disorder doesn’t mean abnormal cognitive intelligence, it could lead to a reduction in the cognitive ability of the child. Therefore, parents need to understand the signs at the earliest and consult a skilled OT. The OTs devise therapy sessions and activities which slowly teach the child to perform daily activities and helps them to become more adaptable to various other motor activities. This could take time and requires patience and various visual and physical demonstrations and activities for the child to learn. Therapy through a professional OT has helped children become better at motor activities and with practice, it has led them to perform the motor activities as automatically and subconsciously as we do.
