Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) has been identified as impairment in the development of motor coordination, which impacts an individual’s functioning in different areas including academic achievement and activities of daily living. Research in this area has focused on young population, with little research focusing on the difficulties encountered by adults with DCD in their daily functioning. Moreover, few researches have investigated the effectiveness of occupational therapy on adults diagnosed with DCD. This study aims to assess the difficulties an adult with DCD encounters as a result of the disorder as well to provide evidence on the effectiveness of a short-term occupational therapy intervention. Evidence was collected by completing pre and post-measures. The results show a significant difference in the adult’s performance on standardized testing that assessed motor skills, visual perceptual skills, and visuomotor integration, as well as on self-reporting scales in relation to quality of life, life satisfaction, and psychological wellbeing.
