Abstract1. Children with developmental coordination disorder had higher body mass index and poorer fundamental movement skills (FMS) proficiency and were less likely to participate in leisure time activities, compared with their peers with typical development.
2. There was a positive association between FMS and physical activity, which was stronger in children with typical development.
3. Using an error-reduced learning paradigm, FMS training was effective in improving FMS proficiency, facilitating active behaviour, and promoting enjoyment in activity participation of children. Some effects were even sustained for 12-months.
4. The school-based FMS training has potential in promoting physical and psychological health in children with developmental coordination disorder in the long run.
