The nature of intra- and interlimb (bimanual) coordination was examined in ten boys with (M = 10.5 years, SD = 1.0) and without DCD (M = 10.8 years, SD = .9) in a two-handed catching task. Children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) caught significantly fewer balls (MDCD = 56%, SD = 17.6 vs. MnoDCD = 93%, SD = 7.5), and both groups solved the “degrees of freedom problem” differently at intralimb level of coordination. Typically developing children coupled and decoupled the respective spatial relations, whereas the majority of children with DCD segmented their actions. At interlimb level, both groups exhibited a comparable degree of spatial symmetry. However, individual profiles also showed that children with varying degrees of movement issues exhibited movement patterns that were qualitatively and functionally diverse. Overall, in the context of previous research on interlimb coordination it appears that spatial, in addition to temporal organization, may be jeopardized in at least some children with DCD.

the linkages among the independent components by imposing constraints on the independent DoFs so that they change together ( Riley & Turvey, 2002 ). For example, in walking and running, a synergy unit, a coordinative structure, emerges between two joints (e.g., hip/knee) or segments (e

boundaries to the movement dynamics ( Newell, 1986 ). The background to this approach was the coordinative structure theory that introduced the constructs of self-organization and constraints to movement coordination and control ( Kugler et al., 1980 , 1982 ), and has developed to coordination dynamics (e

Vector coding is a method that uses joint or segment position data to quantify the coordinative structures needed by the sensorimotor system to complete a task. 22 , 23 Vector coding is a more sensitive measure of subtle changes

practice of rhythmical movements throughout early development, it may be that rhythmical movements are practiced to an extent that the internal model is so stable and predictable that the movements become a coordinative structure ( Kelso, 2012 ; Newell, 2003 ; Schöner, Zanone, & Kelso, 1992 ).
