The DCDDaily is a newly developed, objective and standardized test for children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD) measuring 21 Activities of Daily Living (ADL), covering 3 domains of ADL: self-care, productivity and school, leisure and play. Both quality and speed of performance are recorded.
The proposed classification of factors were confirmed with factor analysis, (excellent fit) after setting free the error variances between two pairs of items. Discriminant validity of the proposed clustering of
items was demonstrated as mean factor scores of children with DCD significantly differed from those of TD children for all five factors.
