Get this from a library. Soft neurological signs in clumsy children: indicators of timing and force control dysfunction. [Laurie Lundy-Ekman]. A standardised clinical examination which focused on neurological soft signs (NSS) was used by a neurologist blind to diagnosis to assess the presence of neurological soft signs.

A comparison of NSS score was made among three groups of subjects consisting of 58 DSM–III schizophrenics, 31 of their healthy first-degree relatives and 38 normal Cited by:   The clumsy children were divided into two groups: those with soft neurological signs associated with cerebellar dysfunction and those with soft neurological signs associated with dysfunction of the basal ganglia.

A control group of age-matched children who did not exhibit evidence of clumsiness or soft neurological signs was also by:   INTRODUCTION. Neurological soft signs (NSS) are very common in children with the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in all ages, and their presence decreases with age.

1 The classical definition describes NSS as a non-normative performance on a neurological examination of motor and sensory functioning in the absence of a focal lesion. 2 The typical manifestations of NSS Cited by: 2. Research in brain abnormalities, both developmental and acquired, has included work in the area of neurological soft signs (NSS), also known as subtle signs or equivocal signs.

NSS can be defined as “mildly slow or clumsy fine (and sometimes gross) motor performances observed during neurological examination” (Deuel, ).Cited by: 9.

Practical, scientifically sound, and augmented with case histories, complete bibliography and glossary, "Clumsy Child Syndromes" presents a broad view of educational and social-emotional implications of motor neurological soft-signs in children.

Dyspraxia is a neurological disorder that affects a child’s ability to plan and process motor tasks.

Children with dyspraxia appear awkward when moving their whole body, or use too much or too little force. When a child has dyspraxia, he can’t imitate others, often mixes up the steps in a sequence, and can’t come up with new ideas during play.

The presence of soft neurological signs also suggested an atypical recruitment of the cerebellum, basal ganglia (BG), and parietal and frontal lobes (17–19). For example, Luria (20) analyzed the cerebral organization of perception and action (as well as attention, memory, speech, and intellectual processes), and discussed the role of the BG.

Conventional neurological examination was in all of them within normal limits; some of them presented, however, soft signs in special tests for cerebellar functions, proving that there was a group of minor cerebellar disorder.

But in the majority of these children special tests revealed a dyspraxia and/or dysgnosia. Many studies have focused on specific motor signs in autism and Asperger's syndrome, but few has been published on the complete range of neurological soft signs (NSS) in children with pervasive.

1. Introduction. Children with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD), sometimes known as “clumsy children,” demonstrate motor difficulties (Bo et al., a, Henderson et al., ) and learning impairment (Alloway and Archibald,Dewey et al.,Kagerer et al., ) that interfere with academic achievement (Henderson and Sugden,Tucha and Lange, ) and.
