ABSTRACT:
The purpose of the study was to find out the influence of selected mobility exercises and participation in special games on game performance among intellectually disabled children of age group under 18, thirty male students who were studying in Balar Kalvi Nilayam and YMCA College Special School, Chennai, acted as subjects for the study. They were only mild and moderate in intellectual disability. These students did not undergo any special training or coaching programme apart from their regular routine physical activity classes as a part of the curriculum in the school. They were attached at random, based on age in which 30 belonged to under 18 age group, Under 18 age group was divided into three equal group of ten for each experimental treatment. In the under 18 age group 10 students (Treatment group I) underwent calisthenics and special games participation, 10 students (Treatment group II) underwent aquatics and special games participation, 10 students (Treatment group III) underwent yoga and special games participation. The subjects were tested on selected criterion variables prior (pre-test) and after twelve weeks of training (post-test). The pre and post-test data collected from three groups on game performance (Bocce skill performance, Badminton skill performance, Table Tennis skill performance), were statistically examined for significant difference, by applying the analysis of covariance (ANACOVA). Computed ‘T’ ratio for find out significant improvement due to the training on game performance. When ever an ‘F’ ratio for adjusted test was found to be significant for adjusted post-test means, Scheffe’s test was followed as a post-hoc test to determine which of the paired mean differences was significant. The result of the study showed that under 18 age group there was a significant improvement on selected criterion variables such as, Bocce skill performance, Badminton skill performance, Table Tennis skill performance due to mobility exercises and participation in special games, however no significant differences among the groups.
