Thirty patients (mean age, 8.8 years old) were randomly selected and examined in the control group were evaluated. The tools of the research were the Conners parent questionnaire, Bruininks-Oseretsky test of motor proficiency. Firstly, the per-test was held for all participants. Then, the experimental group did the perceptual- motor activities for 2 months (24 sessions) and after this period, the post test was administered to both groups. Paired t-test and t-test were used to compare the means (P<0.01).

the significant difference between pre-test and post-test scores of experimental group,  Results: In motor proficiency (total subtests: running speed and agility, balance, bilateral coordination, strength, upper body coordination, response speed, visual controls - motor skills and a high-speed trunk) was found.

Conclusion: It seems that perceptual – motor training improves motor skills in children.
