Children with motor learning difficulties are more likely to experience behavioural and emotional problems than typically developing children, however few studies have examined whether these problems are exacerbated among children with more severe motor difficulties. This paper examines the differences in social and behavioural symptoms among 1592 ten-year-old children, with (n=226) and without (n=1366) motor learning difficulties.
