Review: The impact of motor development on typical and atypical social cognition and language: a systematic review
Hayley C. Leonard, Elisabeth L. Hill
First Published: 08 February 2014

Key Practitioner Message

  • Significant relationships exist between the development of motor skills, social cognition, language and social interactions in typical and atypical development
  • Practitioners should be aware of the relationships between these aspects of development and understand the impact that early motor difficulties may have on later social skills
  • Complex relationships between motor and social skills are evident in children with ASD, DCD and SLI
  • Early screening and more targeted interventions may be appropriate
