Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to compare selected psychomotor abilities and resting heart rates between adolescents with Down syndrome and Intellectually Disability. To achieve the purpose of the study, fifteen intellectually disabled and fifteen adolescents with Down syndrome were selected randomly from Love Shore Institute for Mentally Challenged, Calicut. The selected subjects were divided into two equal groups of fifteen each (i.e., N1=15, down syndrome and N2=15 intellectually disabled). The selected variables were flexibility, balance, shoulder girdle strength, leg strength and resting heart rate. ‘t’ test was applied to compare the data on the selected variables. The results revealed that there was no significant difference in the selected psychomotor abilities and heart rate between adolescents with Down syndrome and intellectual disabilities.
