'The book includes a multifaceted collection of interviews with professionals in the field. These interviews illustrate a variety of the topics covered in the practical guide. I found them interesting, though mostly descriptive. Overall, this Practical Guide and its companion Clinic in Developmental Medicine focus on motor activity as related to all aspects of development, and this perspective is essential to keep in mind in both clinical practice and research. As the authors state: ‘. . . movement is a crucial part of our lives, not only in its own right, but also in its contribution to other abilities’. Movement Difficulties in Developmental Disorders will be useful to many clinicians with an interest in DCD and related disorders, and to parents and teachers. They will all benefit particularly from the case studies, which are a strength of this practical guide.' Margaret Mayston, Developmental Medicine & Child Neurology, 2020
'This book is a wonderful follow-up to Dr. Sugden previous books. It is small, lightweight, and filled with useful, current information pertaining to evidence-based intervention strategies that clinicians, parents, therapists, and teachers can use to inform best practices for the people they serve. Sadly, Dr. Sugden died prior to the book's release, and he leaves behind an incredible legacy with this book. This book would make a lovely gift to anyone working with children with movement difficulties. ' Natasha Smet, OTD, OTR/L, A. T. Still University
