Abstract: 

Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of initial orientation and movement skills training on orienteering skills and advanced motor skills of Tehrani boys with visual impairment in 2012- 2013 academic year. In this study, a quasi-experimental, single group pretest-posttest design was employed.
Methodology: The study population consisted of all blind and visually impaired Tehrani male students aged between 5 and 14 in the academic year of 2012- 2013. The total number of available population, 80 participants, were from preschool, elementary, and junior high schools living in Tehran (members of Shahid Mohebi Complex for the blind and Khazaeli School) as well as all blind students studying in schools in 22 regions of Tehran. Lincoln Oseretsky's questionnaire was utilized. Participants were trained for 12 sessions.
Findings: The results obtained from multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) showed that there was a significant difference between experimental and control groups in terms of static balance (P<.01, F=7.25), fine motors (P<.01, F=14.56), gross motors (P<.01, F=11.85), coordination of both hands (P<.01, F=8.45), coordination of hands and feet (P<.01, F=22.42) and motor skills (P<0.01, F=8.99). However, there was not a significant difference between eye and hand coordination (P<.05, F=1.20) and speed of movement (P<.05, F=1.20).
Conclusion: We can conclude that enough attention should be paid to the capabilities of blind children in different aspects of movement, motor skills in particular. This will develop the autonomy of these individuals and as the result the level of public health will develop.
