MONTORO, Ana Paula Pietro Nobre et al. Concurrent validation of the MABC-2 and Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire-BRValidação concorrente do MABC-2 com o Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire-BR. J. Hum. Growth Dev. [online]. 2016, vol.26, n.1, pp. 74-80. ISSN 0104-1282.

INTRODUCTION: The Movement Assessment Battery for Children, Second Edition (MABC-2) has been widely used in national literature for the diagnosis of Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). The relationship of MABC-2 with the scientific gold standard instrument for DCD, the Brazilian version of the Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire (DCDQ-BR), is not well established and is rather controversial. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to verify the concurrent validity of the MABC-2 motor battery and the DCDQ-BR, controlled for sex and age group. METHODS: The concurrent validation process took place with the participation of 350 schoolchildren aged 7-11 years from the cities of Florianopolis-SC and Manaus-AM and their parents or guardians. The agreement between instruments was assessed with the Spearman correlation test and simple linear regression using SPSS software version 20.0. RESULTS: Positive correlation between instruments´ scales was found. CONCLUSION: This study showed evidence of concurrent validity between MABC-2 and DCDQ-BR, suggesting that MABC-2 can be used as an indicator for developmental coordination disorder.
