In brief: Poor coordination

In a healthy child , who has been thoroughly tested , and has no past medical history to suggest a cause, poor coordination is usually related to low muscle tone, genetics and can be helped by an early intervention program that includes occupational therapy and /or physical therapy.
Remember there are all degrees of athletic success and not every child will become a major league baseball player.
