Abstract

 Background and Aim: CHILDREN who suffer from DEVELOPMENTal COORDINATION DISORDERs (DCD) have weaker situation control and are more prone to falls and damages compared with their healthy peers. EXERCISE may improve BALANCE capability in this population. The aim of the current study was examining the impacts of selected physical EXERCISEs on CHILDREN suffering with DCD.Materials and Method: The study followed a semi-experimental method. A total of 20 testees, boy CHILDREN in the age range of 7-10 referring to two private and public psychological centers for child and adolescent outpatients, were randomly chosen and divided into two experimental and control groups. A pretest was administered for the two groups using the revised version of Stroke Stand for measuring standing BALANCE and tandem walk test for measuring dynamic BALANCE. The experimental group participated in a selected program of physical EXERCISEs for eight weeks (three sessions a week, 45 minutes each session). At the end of the treatment period, items related to BALANCE test were administered for the two groups again. Data was analyzed using Kolmogorov Smirnov test and T test.Results: The results showed that in the pretest, there was no staitstifcal difference between average scores of experimental and control CHILDREN, but in posttest, the statistic and BALANCE average in the experimental group was significantly more than those of the control group (P<0.01).Conclusion: The present study showed that doing selected physical EXERCISEs will improve BALANCE in CHILDREN with DCD.
