Motor activity in a group of people with special educative needs
Although literature about an incipient subject like “Adapted Motor Activity” increases day by day, the studies which approach in a scientific way this subject are not many in our country. So, in this article a research based on motor activity is presented, and that it was carried out with several students with special educational needs. The aim of this study was to evaluate motor and cognitive-motor levels achieved by a group of students with psychophysical disability, after intervention with an adapted motor activity program. Programming was framed into educative system reforme, and it was based on guidelines than Education and Science Ministery (1995) establishes for students who are at Special Educational Centers.
The used experimental design was “intrasubject” with pretest and postest measures. The studied dependent variables were motor age and the cognitive-motor level, and the independent variable was the same Adapted Motor Activity Program itself.
The emerged results were significant in order to increase motor and cognitive-motor aspects from all subjects. For that reason, we can conclude the importance that Motor Activity has for these students with permanent special educational needs.
