Hi,

Could you check the following paragraph please?

"One of the most prominent disorders in primary school-aged children is developmental coordination disorder, which affects motor skills in normal and healthy children. This disorder is a type of developmental delay in children that does not have a specific medical, environmental, and intelligence cause. Some researchers have suggested abnormal brain development as a cause of developmental coordination disorder. The prevalence of this disorder is reported 5-6 percentage in children aged 5-11 years. According to reports, the number of boys with this disorder is more than girls and the ratio of boys to girls is from 2 to 1 to 7 to 1."


Thanks!

That is still vague, I'm afraid. Do you mean that it's easily diagnosed or that its prevalent?
