Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Adults with DCD only or DCD with co-occurrence reported significantly lower success in past (late adolescent) social relationships, compared to typically developing adults. Yet in adulthood, the DCD-only group did not differ significantly from the typically developing group in social relationships. Adults with DCD appear to have more positive social experiences than they did in adolescence. The results suggest a unique contribution of different patterns of neurodevelopmental co-occurrence with DCD in adulthood.
