VARGAS, Leandro Martinez et al. Fundamental movement skills development in children with intellectual disabilities: difference between sexes. Cad. Pós-Grad. Distúrb. Desenvolv. [online]. 2018, vol.18, n.1, pp. 83-103. ISSN 1519-0307.

This study aims to analyze the development of fundamental motor skills (FMS) linked to the locomotion and object control of children with intellectual disabilities. The sample was consisted of boys (n = 28) and girls (n = 19) with ages ranging from 7 to 12 years (M age = 9.6 yr., SD = 1.6). The FMS were evaluated by Test of Gross Motor Development - second edition (TGMD-2. The results recorded higher motor overall ratio average for boys. In the 12 motor skills tested, the boys showed superiority. However, when considering the criteria established by TGMD-2, it was found that 46, of the 47 children evaluated, were below average in terms of motor development, according to age and gender.
