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.
