MOTOR PROFICIENCY IN HEARING IMPAIRED AND HEALTHY CHILDREN: A COMPARISON
Author: Atiya A. Shaikh, Aparna Sadhale
Objective: To score and compare gross motor and fine motor skills in hearing impaired and healthy children and to find co-relation between age and motor proficiency scores in both groups. Material and Method: 180 healthy children and 180 hearing impaired children were scored and compared with each other using short form battery test of Bruininks Osterestky Test of motor Proficiency. Results: There was a significant difference in scores of both groups in running speed, agility, balance, bilateral co-ordination activities, upper limb speed and dexterity and a positive correlation of scores with age in both groups. Conclusion: Hearing impaired children lack significantly in running speed, agility, balance, bilateral co-ordination activities, upper limb speed and dexterity as compared to healthy children, but both groups follow same trend of maturation
Keywords: Motor proficiency, children, healthy, hearing impaired
