ABSTRACT
The aim of this research was to obtain basic information on motor competence (based upon somatic, psychomotor indicators, and socialization) of 6-11 year old children with visual disabilities. A partial aim of our research was to compare the obtained results with those of a section population of children of the same age with normal sight, also tested by us. Finally, we sought to compare such results with national standards and evaluate whether trends in the development of children with visual disabilities are similar to those for children of the same age with normal sight.
