Abstract: Introduction: Postural dysfunctions are described in Developmental Disorders: the static balance deficit is one of the major features of Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and is reported in Dyslexic Children. With computerized dynamic posturography (CDP) balance can be assessed objectively. The primary aim of this study was to assess the postural function in DCD and Dyslexic in comparison with a Control Group (CG) using CDP. Subjects and Methods: Forty-seven children (29 males e 18 females) were assessed using all the six conditions of the Sensory Organizing Test (SOT). 18 CG children (mean age 9.66 ± 1.96 years), 15 Dyslexic children (mean age 9.78 ± 1.09 years) and 14 DCD children (mean age 8.35 ± 1.79 years) were included. Results: DCD had poorer balance measured with the SOT score in every condition (p<0.05) except in SOT 3 (p= n.s.) compared to the CG. Dyslexic children had a good postural control compared to the CG, except in SOT 5 (p = 0.02). Conclusions: CDP showed tha t the DCD group had, as expected, a poorer balance than DD and CG. It is possible to differentiate Dyslexics from the CG only in SOT 5, indicating that the postural disturbance of this group is probably of primarily central vestibular origin. The somatic-sensory input had the same influence on balance function in the three groups. (More)
