Ambulatory Screening for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD).

2019-10-16 10:39:25 | BioPortfolio


To evaluate, in primary care, the sensitivity of Heterophory-Vertical-Labile (HV-Labile) in ambulatory screening for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). in children aged 8 to 12 years.


General practitioners during a day of professional training on learning disabilities will be trained to perform the proprioceptive Maddox, to search for a HVLabile.

Each trained practitioner will then test at least six children aged 8 to 12 years old in his or her practice, seen at random

250 to 300 physicians will be trained as part of this research


- Cross-sectional study with prospective recruitment.

- Search for a Vertical Labile Heterophory (HV-Labile).

- Prescription of a standardized speech and language screening assessment for HV-Labile, and in the same number of children without HV-Labile by secondary coupling.

- Delivery of symptomatic questionnaire.

- In case of learning disabilities, the attending physician should look for a possible etiology.

- Adapted speech therapy care for more than six months.

- Speech and language therapy check-up at more than six months.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Diagnosed when there are specific deficits in an individual’s ability to perceive or process information efficiently and accurately. This disorder first manifests during the years of formal schooling and is characterized by persistent and impairing difficulties with learning foundational academic skills in reading, writing, and/or math. The individual’s performance of the affected academic skills is well below average for age, or acceptable performance levels are achieved only with extraordinary effort. Specific learning disorder may occur in individuals identified as intellectually gifted and manifest only when the learning demands or assessment procedures (e.g., timed tests) pose barriers that cannot be overcome by their innate intelligence and compensatory strategies. For all individuals, specific learning disorder can produce lifelong impairments in activities dependent on the skills, including occupational performance. (from DSM-V)

Behavioral science applied with the aim of improving socially important issues such as behavior problems and learning. For individuals diagnosed with intellectual and developmental disabilities including AUTISM, techniques can be categorized as comprehensive or focused.

Combinations of diagnostic or therapeutic substances linked with specific immune substances such as IMMUNOGLOBULINS; MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES; or ANTIGENS. Often the diagnostic or therapeutic substance is a radionuclide. These conjugates are useful tools for specific targeting of DRUGS and RADIOISOTOPES in the CHEMOTHERAPY and RADIOIMMUNOTHERAPY of certain cancers.

Disorders in which there is a delay in development based on that expected for a given age level or stage of development. These impairments or disabilities originate before age 18, may be expected to continue indefinitely, and constitute a substantial impairment. Biological and nonbiological factors are involved in these disorders. (From American Psychiatric Glossary, 6th ed)

Tests designed to evaluate general and specific areas of behaviors and abilities associated with memory and/or learning.
