Abstract:
We examined whether lifestyle differences between Canadian and Greek children may be reflected in Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) prevalence rates. Data revealed that the relatively inactive Greek children demonstrated higher DCD prevalence rates compared to the Canadian sample and exhibited a greater risk for clinical obesity and low cardiorespiratory fitness.
