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.

Peer victimization is defined as intentional act of harming, hurting and humiliating other children for fulfilling personal satisfaction. This practice is mostly common in schools and at work place, making it necessary to investigate the factors that may enhance the consequences of peer victimization. Children’s with learning disabilities are at a greater risk of being victimized by their peers at school. The prominent purpose of this study is to examine the prevalence of their peer victimization experience and the role of family support in combating the victimization by peer. The sample of current study is composed of 40 learning disabled children of 19 males and 21 females from five English medium school of North Lucknow district. The findings show that children with learning disability are more prone to victimization by their peers. Furthermore, moderate degree of negative correlation was found between peer victimization with family support, which reflects that if the victimized students received support from the family, then the student is able to combat with the peer victimization. In addition, the study also found out that gender do not difference on peer victimization. This means that both males and females face equal level of peer victimization.
