Thomas, M, Christopher, G, Williams, N and Heirene, R (2015) 'Measuring fatigue and related symptoms in adults with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).' Journal of Comorbidity, 5 (2). pp. 102-103. ISSN 2235-042X

Abstract

Comorbidity refers to the presence of two or more disorders in the same person (especially DCD, dyslexia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in terms of developmental disorders). There has been growing interest in the presence of comorbidity in persons with neurodevelopmental disorders. Many recent studies suggest that up to half of all individuals diagnosed with a psychiatric or neurodevelopmental disorder have more than one condition. Comorbidity not only impacts patient outcomes but can also create a significant strain on both family and school life. It can also complicate diagnosis and healthcare organization. The 11th congress on DCD aimed to address some of the important issues surrounding comorbidity in neurodevelopmental disorders. Three main topics were covered during oral and poster presentations: (1) assessment and diagnostic criteria, (2) underlying processes, causal factors, and prognostic markers, and (3) intervention and management of DCD and associated disorders.
