Problems exist in the definition and terminology of the “minimal cerebral dysfunction” syndrome. Various possibilities of diagnosing the different symptoms of the syndrome will be presented in this article. Specific reference will be made to motricity, including the so-called motodiagnostic test procedures, of which the most frequently used in the Federal Republic of Germany will be presented. The psychomotor approach, originally devised by Kiphard and currently called “motopedagogy/mototherapy,” is introduced as one of the most successful means of intervention.
