abstract
Over years researchers have suggested that physical awkwardness is associated with perceptual deficits. In attempting to tackle the underlying perceptual causes of physical awkwardness, two groups of researchers stand out; the work on perceptual motor difficulties and the work that stressed the proprioceptive difficulties children with physical awkwardness experience. The purpose of this study is to examine whether young children with physical awkwardness are more dependent on vision for constructing movements than young children without physical awkwardness preliminarily. In addition to this question, role of visual feedback of the hand and of visual specification of the goal was examined. Participants were assessed by Movement Assessment Battery for Children and 7 5-year-old children with physical awkwardness (AWK group) and age-matched controls (CON group) were selected. The task was to pick beads, one at a time, from one cup and carry them to another cup. With the aid of roof, visual information about performing hand and the cup and beads was manipulated. The results showed that AWK groups made movements that were both more slow and more variable than those of CON groups. The withdrawal of visual information affected both groups of 5-year-old children in similar ways.
