Throwing Patterns of the Mentally Retarded.
Auxter, David
This study explored developmental patterns in the acquisition of the gross motor skill of throwing among 110 educable, mentally retarded 7- to 12-year-olds. Each child was examined through cinematographic procedures to discover: a) variance in throwing patterns, b) elements composing throwing skills, and c) sequential integration of the elements for the development of efficient throwing patterns at different levels of development. The criteria used to determine the maturity of the throwing pattern were: a) the number of contributing body parts involved in the throw, and b) the integration of the number of elements of the throw that mediated progressively more efficient throwing patterns. From the above criteria, all subjects were grouped into 15 categories of throwing patterns. Results are discussed; seven references are included. (BRB)
