R Rajesh and Dr. G Vinod KumarAbstract:
The purpose of the study was to examine the effect of fine motor skill intervention programme on gross motor coordination in primary school children. Total 60 students were selected randomly, the age group of the subject were between 7 and 9 years. The subjects were divided into two groups, one was experimental group and another was control group, each group consists of 30 subjects. Experimental group restricted to 12 weeks of fine motor skill development training program, control group did not perform any fine motor skill development programme. The training session was conducted in three alternate days per week, each session consists of 60 minutes. This study was restricted to selected locomotor skills and objective control skills and total gross motor coordination abilities chosen as performance variable of the children. The pre and post test was conducted after intervention. Based on the analysis of statistical results the twelve weeks of specific fine motor skills development programme had significantly improved locomotor skills, objective control skills and gross motor coordination among the 7-9 years children of experimental group than the Control Group.Pages: 448-451 | 635 Views 17 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
