Relationships among temperament, self-regulation and markers of neurodevelopmental disorder (Master thesis)

Κουλούρη, Σοφία

The main objective of the present study was the investigation of the relationships between the dimensions of temperament and the indicators of the developmental coordination disorder in the Greek children population. Its individual objectives were (a) the control of the psychometric properties (structural validity and internal consistency) of the tools of assessment of temperament and the developmental coordination disorder, aimed at parents of pre-school and first-school children. The sample was formed by 231 children (110 girls and 121 boys) aged 3-7 years (Mean = 4.75 years and SD = 1.30). Parents (N = 231) were given for completion the Children's Behavior Questionnaire (Mary K. Rothbart, 1996) and the Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire (Wilson and Crawford, 2007). For Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire, the confirmatory analysis resulted in three factors consistent with those constructors with strong internal consistency reliability. Regarding the Child Behavior Questionnaire, which measures the dimensions of temperament, the application of the confirmatory factor analysis indicated three factors and satisfactory internal consistency reliability. The application of path analysis showed that temperamental self-regulatory capacity, which reflects both inhibitory and stimulatory abilities, has a positive effect on all three indicators of the developmental coordination disorder questionnaire.
