Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between physical activity level and motor skill proficiency in school-aged children ages 9-18 with developmental disabilities. Physical activity level was assessed using Actigraph GT3X+ accelerometers, which participants wore for all hours of the day for seven days. Motor skill proficiency was assessed using the Test of Gross Motor Development Second Edition (TGMD-2). The TGMD-2 assesses gross motor skills through the locomotor subtest and fine motor skills through the object control subtest. The correlation between the amount of time that children with developmental disabilities (n=16) spent in physical activity and total, locomotor and object control motor skill proficiency was non-significant (p>0.05 in all analyses). The relationship between physical activity and motor skills needs to be further explored.
