BACKGROUND: Developmental Coordination Disorder is characterized by the motor impairments of motor coordination in all functional activities. Child with Learning Disability are prone to have motor deficit which leads to poor performance in academics and ADL activities.
OBJECTIVE: To find out the effectiveness of motor training protocol on motor proficiencies in children with Developmental Coordination Disorder.
METHODOLOGY: The Quasi Experimental study was done in 40 Learning Disability with Developmental Coordination Disorder children of age 7-12 years were taken and divided into 2 groups. Exercise protocol was given to experimental group and conventional therapy for control group. Bruininks- Oseretsky Test-2 for Motor proficiency was used as an outcome measure.
RESULTS: The results of the study showed, both the groups showed significant improvement in all domains, while fine-motor composite is highly significant for both groups.
CONCLUSION: The study concludes that there is significant improvement in fine motor composite after 8 weeks of motor proficiency training protocol among Learning Disability children with Developmental Coordination Disorder.
