Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The Cratty Test of Gross-Motor Performance was administered to 18 Down syndrome and 18 other mentally retarded children between the ages of 7 and 14 years. Subjects were individually matched on both MA and CA. Examination of their test profiles showed that the Down syndrome children had consistently lower scores that did the matched control children, but only two of the differences were significant. The findings, therefore, provide tentative support for the notion that Down syndrome children suffer a specific deficit in some areas of motor coordination. A number of criticisms of the internal consistency of the test were discussed in terms of their theoretical and practical implications.
