Introduction: The present study was aimed to identify the influence of sports vision exercises on fundamental motor skills and visual perceptual skills of 8-10-year-old dyslexic children.
Method: A pretest-posttest quasi-experimental study was conducted. The sample was composed of 22 eight- to ten-year-old dyslexic children who were referred to two learning disabilities treatment centers in Isfahan, Iran. The children were selected purposefully, using convenience sampling, and randomly assigned to two experimental and control groups. The experimental group participated in sports vision exercises for 12 weeks (3 one-hour sessions per week) and the control group continued their daily activities during this period of learning. Before and after the training, the fundamental motor skills were assessed using Movement Assessment Battery for Children (MABC) and visual perceptual skills were measured by Gardner’s test (TVPS-R, the data were analyzed using analysis of covariance.
Results: The results showed that the sports vision exercises increase fundamental motor skills and visual perceptual skills in dyslexic children.
Conclusion: Based on the findings of recent research there is a suggestion for parents and authorities to include sports vision exercises in the educational programs of dyslexic children.
