The Little Developmental Coordination Questionnaire is a parent report measure that screens for motor coordination difficulties in 3- and 4- year old children. It consists of 15 items, which group into two distinct factors: 1) gross motor skills and 2) fine motor skills. The Little DCDQ measures functional skills in several contextual areas across home and preschool environments and during play activities.
The full report of its development, reliability and validity can be found, through open access, at:
