Symposium on Children with DCD: The next BIG questions for research
The purpose of this invited Symposium is to develop a clear vision for the future of experimental research on DCD—the next BIG questions and how to answer them!
The international group will share their current work and viewpoints on the next big questions that will advance DCD research. Leading up to the Symposium, the group will share their knowledge of funding opportunities that may promote multi-center research on children with DCD. The Symposium will provide a trusted forum for discussion about what we can do collectively to make the next quantum leap in understanding DCD—that is, to identify ideas and study plans of highest priority! Our group will also conduct this discussion and planning with an eye to practice—ways to translate our basic research into practice.
