Children with behavioral problems and motor problems have a worse neurological condition than children with behavioral problems only.

Early Hum Dev. 2014 Dec;90(12):803-7

Authors: Peters LH, Maathuis CG, Hadders-Algra M

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Some evidence suggests that children with specific behavioral problems are at risk for motor problems. It is unclear whether neurological condition plays a role in the propensity of children with behavioral problems to develop motor problems.
AIMS: To examine the relation between behavioral problems, motor performance and neurological condition in school-aged children.
STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional study.
SUBJECTS: 174 children (95 boys) receiving mainstream education and 106 children (82 boys) receiving special education aged 6 to 13 years (mean 9 y 7 m, SD 1 y 10 m).
OUTCOME MEASURES: Behavior was assessed with questionnaires: the parental Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) and Teacher’s Report Form (TRF). Motor performance was assessed with the Movement Assessment Battery for Children (MABC). MABC-scores ≥5th percentile were considered as age-adequate and scores <5th percentile indicated definite motor problems. Neurological condition was assessed in terms of Minor Neurological Dysfunction (MND).
RESULTS: The majority of specific behavioral problems were associated with definite motor problems, except somatic complaints and rule breaking behavior. Children with externalizing problems, according to the CBCL or TRF, and motor problems had more often MND than children with externalizing problems only. The same holds true for internalizing problems according to the CBCL.
CONCLUSIONS: The present study demonstrated that various forms of behavioral problems were associated with motor problems. Especially children with motor and behavioral problems showed MND.
