The Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire 2007 (Wilson et al., 2007) is a parent-completed screening tool for motor coordination. It has been recently translated into Italian and adapted to the Italian culture (Caravale, Baldi, Gasparini & Wilson, 2014). This work presents an investigation conducted on 312 Italian subjects aged 5-12 years. The Italian version of DCDQ'07 revealed a good internal consistency. A good convergent validity was also proved analyzing the scores of 70 participants who were administered the Movement Assessment Battery for Children (Henderson & Sudgen, 1992) in addition to the DCDQ'07. Clinical and research applications of DCDQ'07 are discussed.
