Purpose: influence of motor activity, based on the reduction and control of muscular tone, on scholastic attention. Methods: in the method adopted, children were subject to a session of proprioceptive exercises prior to undergoing a dictation test. The number of errors made during the dictation test was analyzed to see whether the children made fewer errors than in dictation tests not preceded by a session of psychomotor exercises. Results: the final results firmly demonstrate that motor activity conducted shortly before an attention test is capable of modifying the results of the test itself. Conclusion: a T-Test further demonstrated that the effect of motor activity on performance is independent of sex. After having established this factor, sequence of administration and effect of time were also taking into consideration. It was determined that the effect of motor activity on a child’s performance is independent of both.

Abstract

Purpose: influence of motor activity, based on the reduction and control of muscular tone, on scholastic attention. Methods: in the method adopted, children were subject to a session of proprioceptive exercises prior to undergoing a dictation test. The number of errors made during the dictation test was analyzed to see whether the children made fewer errors than in dictation tests not preceded by a session of psychomotor exercises. Results: the final results firmly demonstrate that motor activity conducted shortly before an attention test is capable of modifying the results of the test itself. Conclusion: a T-Test further demonstrated that the effect of motor activity on performance is independent of sex. After having established this factor, sequence of administration and effect of time were also taking into consideration. It was determined that the effect of motor activity on a child’s performance is independent of both.
