Data were collected before (baseline) and after the 8-week program, by collecting 3 subtests of motor skillstest: 1) locomotor, 2) object control and 3) gross motor quotient. The results wereanalyzed by using independent t-test statistical to test mean differences of 3 motor skill subtests between two groups, and paired t-test statistical for differences within group.
