The aim of this current study was to investigate the effect of a perceptual-motor training program on children's developing motor skills aged between 8 to 11 with high function autistic disorder. In order to do so, 30 girls with HFA disorder aged between 8-11 were selected by cluster among Karaj special schools and based on pre-test scores were placed in the control group and experimental group. The testable pre-test and post-test scores were measured by a body of Bruininks-Ozertesky's test.
The interposer movement program consisted of perceptual-motor exercises which were done for 16 sessions for these girls. K-S test was used to determine the distribution of data, and Levin’s test and Covariance analysis were used to compare means. The results showed that perceptual-motor training program had a significant effect on the development of fine scales of agility, running, balance, two-sided coordination, and strength in HFA kids (P <0.05). But in fine scales including response rapidity, visual-motor control, speediness and agility of upper limbs there was no significant effect (P>0.05). According to these results, it can be claimed that the training program used can probably improve fundamental skills of children with HFA.
