Motor Development of the Kindergarten Spanish-Speaking Disadvantaged Child.
Sasser, Connie
The purpose of this study was to determine whether an experimental group of kindergarten age, Spanish-speaking, disadvantaged children could make significant gains in motor skills when given a concentrated motor development program. The sample consisted of 32 students, 17 students in the experimental group and 15 students in the control group, attending kindergarten classes in San Antonio, Texas. A concentrated motor development program was given to the experimental group for a period of 7 weeks. The control group was given no extra motor activities other than free outside play. Pre-test and post-test scores, Ayres' Perceptual Motor Test was used, indicated that gains in the bilateral rhythms, body balance with vision, body balance without vision, and skin design tests were significant for the experimental group. Gains on the gross motor planning test and the draw-a-man test were found not to be significant. (PS)
