This study investigated the links between children's motor performance using the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT-2), with the perceptions of children, parents, and teachers of children's motor skills. Fifty-five children (8-12 years of age) completed the Physical Self-Description Questionnaire (PSDQ) and the Self-Perception Profile for Children (SPPC). Parents completed the Developmental Profile III (DP-III) and the Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire (DCDQ-P) while teachers completed the Developmental Coordination Disorder Questionnaire (DCDQ-T) and the Teacher's Rating Scale of Child's Actual Behavior (SPPC-T). Regression analysis found that the children, parents, and teachers subscale scores together represented 36.9% of the variance in the BOT-2 total motor composite score. Findings from this study support the top-down assessment approach in paediatric occupational therapy practice.
