Abstract

The effectiveness of a kinaesthetic training programme proposed by Laszlo for children with movement difficulties was evaluated by comparing two groups of 10 'clumsy' children matched pairwise on age, IQ and sex as well as degree of kinaesthetic and motor impairment. Tests of kinaesthetic ability, using the Parameter Estimation by Sequential Testing (PEST) procedure, and motor competence administered before and after treatment revealed an improvement in both groups on all measures butno differential effect of the training programme. Immediately after training, the changes we obtained in motor performance were confined tobalance skills but, at follow up, 3 months later, changes in manual and ball skills were also evident. This unusual pattern of change requires replication. Our findings forced us to consider the possibility that any effect of Laszlos recommended training programme had been obscured by our use of the PEST procedure, which had in itself facilitated motor learning.
