To evaluate, in primary care, the sensitivity of Heterophory-Vertical-Labile (HV-Labile) in ambulatory screening for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) and Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). in children aged 8 to 12 years.


General practitioners during a day of professional training on learning disabilities will be trained to perform the proprioceptive Maddox, to search for a HVLabile.

Each trained practitioner will then test at least six children aged 8 to 12 years old in his or her practice, seen at random

250 to 300 physicians will be trained as part of this research


  • Cross-sectional study with prospective recruitment.
  • Search for a Vertical Labile Heterophory (HV-Labile).
  • Prescription of a standardized speech and language screening assessment for HV-Labile, and in the same number of children without HV-Labile by secondary coupling.
  • Delivery of symptomatic questionnaire.
  • In case of learning disabilities, the attending physician should look for a possible etiology.
  • Adapted speech therapy care for more than six months.
