Motor Behavior
Abstract:   (963 Views)
Background: Down syndrome is one of the most common congenital chromosomal abnormalities.
Objective: The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of two methods of motor program and computer games on fine motor skills in children with Down syndrome disorder.
Methods: For this purpose, 45 students who were studying in exceptional schools Tehran were selected with the available sampling method. After homogenizing the scores in the pretest, participants were divided into three groups of 15 people including two experimental groups (motor program and computer game groups) and one control group. Experimental groups participated in selective games for 10 weeks, three 40-minute sessions a week. To collect the test data before and after the intervention were BOTMP. T-tests (dependent) and covariance were used to the comparison of results.
Results: The results showed that there is a significant difference between the groups of computer games and motor program compared to the control group in fine motor skill (respectively P=0.001, P=0.007). the results also showed that there is no significant difference between the two groups of computer games and the motor program in fine motor skill (P≥0.05).
Conclusion: Therefore, it seems that the correct use of computer games can improve fine motor skills in children with Down syndrome disorder.
