The aim of this study was to examine the effectiveness of teaching fundamental Motor skills program on Perceptual Motor abilities of trainable Intillectual Disabled children, the relationship between the selected of motor skills level and the level of Perceptual motor abilities of trainable Intillectual Disabled children.
The study sample has consisted of (20) trainable Intillectual Disabled children aged between (8-11). The children have been categorized into two similar and equal groups as of IQ and age. They have been chosen via the deliberate approach where their IQ rate was between (40-55) degree. The researchers have approached the experimental approach because it suites the aim and the nature of the study. The researchers have used the pre and post-exams after the verification of their scientific coefficients as of validity and solidity. To answer the questions of the study, the researchers have used the arithmetic means, standard deviations, (t) test and correlation cofficient.
The results have shown a positive effect of the teaching program regarding the fundamental motor skills and the Perceptual motor abilities of the study sample as well as significant differences between the experimental and control group in post-measurement for the benefit of experimental group. The results have also shown a positive correlation relation between the learning of command control skill, balance skill and the Perceptual motor abilities of this category of Intillectual Disabled.
