Developmental dyspraxia is a disorder characterized by impairment in the ability to plan and carry out sensory and motor tasks. Generally, individuals with the disorder appear "out of sync" with their environment. Symptoms vary and may include poor balance and coordination, clumsiness, vision problems, perception difficulties, emotional and behavioral problems, poor social skills, poor posture, poor short-term memory, and difficulty in reading, writing, and speaking. Although individuals with the disorder may be of average or above average intelligence, they may behave immaturely.
