  • Andreea-Gabriela Lazăr „Ștefan cel Mare” University of Suceava


This research aimed to improve some components of psychomotor by using some therapeutic play activities in Physical Education and Sports lessons. The study was conducted at the „Stefan cel Mare” Gymnasium School in Putna, on five children aged between 7 and 10 years old. This experiment took place during a school year. The research is based on the premise that play (playful activities) conceived as therapy is part of the new trend of teaching-learning methods, which aim to transform the role of the teacher and to give new possibilities to the child with certain psychomotor disorders. The results have highlighted that the application of different ludo-therapy activities in physical education and sport lessons to children without mental deficiencies, but which have different psychomotor disorders, has led to the improvement of some components of psychomotor, namely static and dinamic balance, general coordination, segmental coordination, ocular - motor coordination and spatial orientation.
