The purpose

Objective: To compare the effectiveness of EEG biofeedback mental attention-neuromuscular training (AT-NMT), neuromuscular training (NMT) alone, EEG biofeedback mental attention training (AT) alone, and no intervention for improving reactive balance performance among children with developmental coordination disorder (DCD). Design: A single-blinded, randomized controlled clinical trial. Sample: 172 children with DCD. Interventions: AT-NMT, NMT, AT, or no intervention for 12 weeks. Major outcomes: Outcomes will be evaluated at baseline, post-intervention, and 3-month follow-up. A motor control test (MCT) will give a composite latency score, prefrontal cortex EEG recordings during MCT will measure the mental attention level, and surface electromyography recordings during MCT will indicate the lower limb muscle onset latency.
