Purpose: To assess the effect of motor skill Training Programme through tele rehabilitation to improve the motor proficiency in children with suspected developmental coordination disorder. Relevance: The execution impairments in suspected DCD leads to associated problems. A meta-analysis in these children found deficient in visual–spatial processing which strongly attributed to clumsy motor performance. Due to pandemic, the on-going rehabilitation of patients have been altered leading to the adaptation of tele-rehabilitation as an alternative and new normal approach. Participants: Age group of children between 05-15 years with Cut-off scores on DCDQ-07 questionnaire: < 47 for 4.6–7.11years, < 56 for 8–9.11 years & < 58 for 10–15 yearsMethods: A total of 30 children were randomly allocated into interventional group (n=15) and control group (n=15). Interventional group received motor skill training programme (MSTP), through tele-rehabilitation for 45–50 minutes per session, three times /week for 6 weeks and control group received demonstration of MSTP as home programme for 45–50 minutes daily for 6 weeks. Motor proficiency for both the groups were measured at baseline and post intervention using BOT-2. Analysis: The between the groups analysis of BOT-2 was done using an independent t-test, within-group analysis was done using a paired t-test. Results: Between group analysis showed significance (p<0.05) in manual coordination (p=0.001) and total motor composite (p=0.005). Conclusion: The motor skill training programme through telerehabilitation significantly improved motor proficiency in suspected developmental coordination disorder. Implications: The study adopted unique mode of delivery of intervention, and found overall improvement in total motor composite score on BOT-2.
