Motor coordination is an important component of a child’s development. Children with low motor coordination are more likely to be overweight and unfit by the time they are teenagers. To better understand how to help these children, we are following a group of young children and looking at their motor coordination, physical activity and fitness and how they relate to each other and change over time.
