AUTHOR(S): R Anantha Ravi and Dr. W Vinu
The aim of this study was to suggest suitable adaptation for physical exercise for the benefit of children with autism and to find out the effect of the same on selected psychomotor variables, such as, movement time and reaction time. For this purpose, the investigator selected 30 children with autism and divided into two groups, experimental (n=15) and control (n=15). The experimental group was asked to perform with normal peers group along with music and video display of the adopted physical exercise. Pre and post test scores on reaction time was collected and subjected to statistical analysis using ANCOVA. The results proved that there was significance on reaction time (P<0.05) due to adapted physical exercise. It was concluded that the adaptation of physical exercise with non-disabled exercise partners along with music and video display make the children with autism involve in the experimental treatment which can be followed future researchers apart from the fact that it contributes for the beneficial improvement of selected psycho motor variables of the children with autism compared to controls.
