Purpose:The aim of this study was to study the effect and persistence (stability of exercise effect), working memory (ability to remember and manage information) and self-concept (overall evaluation of one's personality) among children with developmental coordination disorder.
Methods: The present study was a quasi-experimental study with a control group. 30 girls aged 8-10 years with developmental coordination disorder were divided into experimental and control groups based on the score obtained in the children's movement test and intelligence score. N-back tests were used to measure working memory and Pierce-Harris 2 test was used to assess self-concept. The training protocol included a set of cognitive, motor, and basic games that considered the development of memory and self-concept components. Data were analyzed using two-way analysis of variance
Frequent measurements on the test factor (time) were analyzed.
results: Findings showed working memory function (p = 0.000) and self-concept (p = 13.13). The results of the present study showed that working memory and self-concept scores increased significantly in the exercise group compared to the control group. Also, the effect of training permanence after three months on working memory (p = 0.000) and self-concept (p = 0.49) was maintained.
Conclusion: Based on the findings of the present study, selected games are effective on improving and maintaining the working memory and self-concept of children with developmental coordination disorders.
