Troubles de l'acquisition des coordinations à l'école maternelle : validation d'une échelle d'hétéroévaluation

Abstract : This exploratory work is a study for teachers for 5-year-old children in a reception class, about an elaboration of a scale for identification of the Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). Children DCD are victims of late tracking and detection, which have serious consequences in the emotional, social, school activities, for themselves and their families. An earlyidentification allows a diagnosis so that supports can be organized early in the entrance of the primary school. The theoretical reference of item response, model of RASH, has developed an intensity scale. It contains 22 items, fit the diagnostic criteria for developmental dyspraxia and school activities : the Adaptation Scale of School Life. This scale, has been applied to 144 children from 3 years 2 month to 9 years 2 month (divided into 4 groups with specific profiles : withlearning difficulties, living with disabilities, DCD, Persuasive Developmental Disorders). This shows that it’s sensitive to the effects of development. It discriminates on one single latent trait of children DCD. The scale applied to a second 185 children common group from 3 years 5 month to 6, shows a gender effect, a class effect for boys. This second study provides a further score threshold for screening and support in the classroom. Statistical tests highlight the reliability and the validity of the scale. Further work is planned and possible scale development proposed. A digital information (CD)on the DCD that proposes wide tracking for users of the scale (teachers) is also developed.
