Compared to their typically developing counterparts, children with neurodevelopmental, emotional, and/or behavioural challenges participate in lower levels of physical activity. The goal of this research was to deepen our understanding of the physiological and psychosocial factors that influence the physical activity behaviours of these children. The thesis findings highlighted noteworthy differences in the physiological and psychosocial profiles of children across the motor competence spectrum. It is hoped the outcomes of this research will assist in educating families, health professionals, and the wider community about how to create positive physical activity experiences for children with neurodevelopmental, emotional, and/or behavioural problems.
