Childhood movement disorders are a diverse group of neurologic conditions manifested by an excess of abnormal or involuntary movements (hyperkinesias), a paucity of movement, or other disorders of motor control (eg, ataxia). The taxonomy of childhood movement disorders can be organized according to the phenomenology of the involuntary movements. Major subdivisions include hyperkinetic disorders, hypokinetic disorders, and cerebellar disorders. Other classification schemes include key descriptors of the underlying condition.
