PHYSICAL THERAPY - AN ALTERNATIVE FOR REHABILITATING MOTOR DYSGRAPHIA IN SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN
The scientific studies dealing with motor dysgraphia are regarded more from the perspective of psychology or speech therapy, and less from the perspective of physical therapy. This researcher believes that this problem was not investigated enough and a continuation of studies in this direction is necessary. This research aims to identify as early as possible the school age children who manifest a potential for written language learning disorders. Also, the selection of physical therapy means and techniques represents a novelty in treating this psycho-motor disorder. In conclusion, the recorded results confirm the initial hypotheses, as follows: at the end of the individualized physical therapy programs there was a considerable increase of the subjects' endurance/strength and fine motor skills/perception, and their favorable results recorded during the final tests were due to their constant active participation in the physical therapy programs, respecting the given indications, collaborating well, so that the goals be achieved successfully.
