FERNANI, Deborah Cristina Gonçalves Luiz et al. Motor intervention on children with school learning dificulties. Rev. bras. crescimento desenvolv. hum. [online]. 2013, vol.23, n.2, pp. 209-214. ISSN 0104-1282.

This study aimed to evaluate motor development in children aged 6 to 11 years with learning difficulties and school characteristics of delayed motor development, before and after application of a motor intervention program. The sample consisted of 28 children with a mean age of 107.21 ± 16.56 months, which were evaluated by Motor Development Scale and received motor intervention for 6 months, followed by reassessment. We observed a statistically significant difference between the average of the motor activity ratios in all areas in the evaluation and reevaluation. It was also verified in the evaluation, the concentration ratios of children with motor activity greater than or equal to 80 and there was a revaluation increase in this concentration, and the areas with the greatest increase in concentration and significant differences were: Schema Body, Space and temporal Organization. In the overall evaluation of EDM, most children presented the classification of "low normal". However, in the reassessment most has evolved into the "average normal", only 4 of these remained in the same classification. Therefore, in this study, children with learning disabilities also showed motor deficits and the intervention applied contributed to increase the motor ratios with consequent improvement in motor development. Besides psychopedagogical asistance, it is essential to reassess and if necessary apply the intervention on the motor development in children with learning difficulties.
