A Study of Early Fine Motor Intervention in Down's Syndrome Children
Aparicio, Teresa Sanz; Balana, Javier Menendez
Early Child Development and Care, v179 n5 p631-636 Jul 2009
The marked delay in acquisition of fine motor skills in trisomic-21/Down's syndrome children is undeniable. In this study, we began with an affirmation that the cause of this deficit could be found in a different environment for which early intervention is essential. A sample of 30 Down's syndrome children was used to study at different ages: six months and nine months until 18 months of age. The obtained results establish statistically significant differences in favour of the six-month age groups. (Contains 4 figures and 2 tables.)
