my son is dyspraxic, in his assessments I do remember him being asked to touch the doctor's finger, then his own nose, and touching finger to thumb... but can't really speculate from what you've said. I imagine they might be screening for a wide variety of issues, but they really ought to be communicating better I would say. can you ask to talk to them again? who actually assessed him - someone from outside school? in a very general way though I would say that you might feel resistant to having your child labelled with a problem (not assuming though!) but for those of us who have fought for intervention it is good to have someone paying attention and potentially offering extra help.
