Author(s): J Naresh Kannan and Dr. PV Shelvam
The purpose of the study was to investigate the changes on balance and co-ordination after twelve weeks of physical exercises among special children. To achieve the purpose of the study, thirty special children from G.V. Special School, Chidambaram, Tamil Nadu, India were selected as subjects at random in the age group of 13 years to 19 years. The selected subjects were randomly assigned into two groups of 15 each, in which, group – I (n = 15) underwent physical exercises, group – II (n = 15) acted as control which did not participate in any special training. The training programme was carried out six days per week for twelve weeks. Prior to and after the training period the subjects were tested for balance and co-ordination. Balance was assessed by balance beam test and co-ordination was measured by power simple co-ordination test. The statistical tool used for the present study was independent ‘T’ test. The result of the study reveals significant changes on balance and co-ordination of the special children after twelve weeks of physical exercises.
