This single case study examines the efficacy of jugglingtherapy® in a 12-year-old boy diagnosed with Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD) and dysgraphia. He underwent eight sessions of jugglingtherapy®, focusing on motor sequencing, tonal relaxation, movement synchronicity, spatiotemporal organization, digital gnosis, and bimanual praxis. Pre- and post-assessments (3 years later) included the BHK French adaptation scale for handwriting abilities, revealing a significant improvement in graphomotor skills post-therapy. The study discusses the positive impact of juggling by jugglingtherapy® on cognitive functions and motor skills. Despite mixed findings in the litterature, jugglingtherapy® holds promise as a complementary intervention for individuals with dysgraphia, DCD, and related neurodevelopmental disorders, requiring further research to establish efficacy, mechanisms, and optimal dosage. The study advocates for individualized approaches in clinical practice and underscores the need for rigorous methodology in future research to clarify the role of jugglingtherapy® in mainstream treatment.
