Keywords: Children; Developmental Coordination Disorder, DCD; Motor Observation Questionnaire For Teachers, MOQ-T; Screening.
The present study was designed to collect data on the Italian adaptation of the Motor Observation Questionnaire for Teachers (MOQ-T, Schoemaker, Flapper, Reinders-Messelink, & De Kloet, 2008). We provide data for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades, in some cases distinguishing males from females. On the basis of the present and previous evidence (Giofrè et al., 2014) the MOQ-T appears a valid and a fast screening instrument for detecting developmental coordination disorders (DCD) symptoms (on the basis of teachers' ratings) in children and can be very important as a first step in the process for diagnosing DCD.
