Abstract

Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of exercise on motor skills in inclusive students.

Method: Thirty male inclusive students aged between 7-12 years in public or elementary and secondary schools in Batman participated in the study. Participants were given 60 min exercise program 2 days a week for 16 weeks. Bruininks-Oseretsky motor competence test (BOT-2) was used to determine motor skills after the exercise. In the study, dependent sample t test was used to determine the differences in the balance scores, dual coordination, upper extremity coordination, fine motor accuracy and integration scores in the first and last tests.

Results: There was no significant difference between the height before the exercise program and the height after the exercise program, the weights before the exercise program and the weights after the exercise program. A significant difference was found between balance scores, dual coordination, upper extremity coordination, fine motor accuracy and integration scores in the before and after exercise program.

Conclusion:  The 16-week exercise program provided significant differences  in terms of balance, dual coordination, upper extremity coordination, fine motor accuracy and fine motor integration parameters in inclusive students.
