The following four tests will identify a clumsy or inco-ordinate subject as far as this is possible on clinical examination. Such tests are non-specific and difficult to validate, but will be used in conjunction with other findings and the opinions of teachers and parents, recorded elsewhere. The results will inevitably be influenced by the effects of subject's skill and experience. At the end of the tests the examiner is asked to give a considered opinion as to the degree of clumsiness or inco-ordination.
