This study aimed to examine the effects of 12-weeks physical exercise training program on speed and agility of deaf and dumb children. Sixty deaf and dumb children were randomly selected from the Sri Sachha muk and the Bhadir educational institute Bahdurgarh Haryana. Students ranged in age from 11 to 18 years. The children were randomly selected into two groups: experimental group (N = 30) and control group (N = 30). The experimental group was selected for the Physical Exercise Training Program for twelve weeks for five day a week and the control group continued their regular school activity. To compare the difference between the pre and posttest of deaf and dumb students on speed and agility ‘t’ test was used and the significance level was set at 0.05. A significant difference was found between pre and post test results on speed and agility motor fitness factor variables. The results of the present study supported the fact that 12 weeks physical exercise training program brings significant improvements in various speed and agility of deaf and dumb children. In the control group no significant difference between the pre-and post-test on speed and agility was observed. The present study will be useful for children with special abilities to develop their overall personality.
