The purpose of this research was to determine the effects of perceptual motor training on improving the motor abilities of children with developmental coordination disorder. A total of 194 male and female elementary school students (aged between 6 and 11) were selected from three regions of Tehran and participated voluntarily in this study. The subjects were randomly assigned to two groups of experimental and control. The subjects performed a pretest prior to participating in the training program. The training program included two months of adjusted perceptual motor activities for 24 sessions. Following the training program, both the experimental and control groups took part in the posttest. The test included manual dexterity, dynamic and static balance, and ball handling skills. The data were analyzed by PC: SPSS-13. The results showed that children with perceptual motor training significantly improved their development coordination disorder or dyspraxia.
