Competence in motor skill and good movement coordination are important. Some people have difficulties with motor skill which may lead to problems with activities of daily living, and may hinder academic achievement and employment. There is a need to understand these difficulties, and their impact, as well as a need for appropriate tools to assist diagnosis.
Cara's research interests broadly lie in understanding Developmental Coordination Disorder in adulthood and the development of reliable and valid tests for the assessment of motor skill.
