The purpose of this study is to analyze the effects of psychomotor physical activity program on the athletic abilities of children with developmental delays, aged 5 to 7.
The study used the mot 4–6 tests developed by Zimmer of Germany and confirmed the statistical validation procedure using the SPSS 21.0 version. *p<.05. In detail, we measured the athletic ability, agility, coordination, balance, jumping power, and adjustment ability among the elements of the motor development, and performed the measurement together with three research assistants.
The Results of the experimental group and the control group showed significant differences in the Results of the exercise development of the retarded children through the psychomotor exercise program. First, the group applying the psychomotor exercise program had statistical changes in overall exercise development ability such as coordination, balance ability, and jumping ability. However, in the control group, there was no statistical change in overall motor development ability and detailed motor development. Also, it is noteworthy that the ability to adjust the movement was not statistically changed in both groups. Therefore, psychological athletic activities will need to follow up on the ability to adjust movement and discuss various methods.
The scope of various studies for psychological exercise should not be delayed but should be expanded to focus on the movement and sociality of the socially vulnerable.
