The Motor Development Scale (MDS) (Rosa Neto, 2021) is a motor assessment protocol, indicated for children aged between 2 and 11 years, which includes three motor areas: coordination (fine and global motor skills), proprioception (balance and body scheme), and perception (spatial and temporal organization) (See Figure 2). The instrument provides quantitative and qualitative values for each motor domain. Motor ages represent the results of specific test and general development. Motor quotients are classified into levels: “Very High” (equal to or greater than 130 points); "High" (120-129); “Normal High” (110-119); “Average” (90-109); “Average Low” (80-89); “Low” (70-79) and “Very Low” (less than 70). MDS was administered individually to children in the ADHD and DCD groups in a single session lasting approximately 40 minutes. Rosa Neto, F. (2021).
