MOTOR COMPLEXITY AND LOGIC-MATHEMATICAL ABILITIES: PROPOSAL FOR INTERVENTION ON A VISUALLY IMPAIRED SAMPLE

Luna Lembo, Anna Maria Mariani

Abstract


The interest of research focuses on the possibility of exploiting the benefits of complex motor activity on learning and cognitive development in a sample of children with visual impairment.

Scientific pieces of evidence point to the onset of certain difficulties in the cognitive development of children with visual impairment, particularly in the processes of seriation and classification. (Tobin, 1972; Warren, 1984; Macesic-Petrovic, 2010).

The analysis of the literature was made by comparing the benefits of aerobic activity and complex motor activity on cognitive functions, and subsequently, it was hypothesized that complex motor activity involves a greater benefit on mental functioning because coordination between thoughts and movement that characterizes it, makes the improvement more lasting in time and space. In order to do this, we propose an intervention protocol, which includes an evaluation with OLC TEST, at the beginning, at the end and in a third time, of the cognitive abilities concerning elementary logical operations, therefore tasks that include the activities of seriation and classification. The protocol provides for the insertion of three groups that will practice aerobic activity G1, complex motor activity G2, the third group will not practice any activity. The assessment will take place in 3 steps: T0 before the beginning of the protocol, T1 after 6 months of training and T2, 6 months after the end of workout.
