Treatment measures should focus on two main facets: the difficulties and impairments in the different motor functions, and the associated social and emotional difficulties. The first facet requires an active functional treatment of motor functions focusing on the child's individual difficulties. Programmes are available for this kind of treatment, which is usually carried out by physiotherapists and occupational therapists. (52)

In treating the second facet, therapists are confronted with the child's insecurity, which is a direct result of motor difficulties, poor body scheme, avoidance reactions of peers and classmates, and frequent feelings of inferiority and a low self-esteem.(53) These associated problems need to be addressed in psychotherapy, in addition to programmes that focus solely on training motor functions.
