    Abstract

    Moving is a part of our everyday lives. Along with the cognitive, emotional and social components it also forms the personality of an individual as a whole. All areas are closely connected to each other and affect one another. Students with specific learning disabilities not only show cognitive deficits (attention, memory, thinking), but also have problems in areas such as communication, social and emotional competences, behavior. Problems also occur with physical mobility. In the master's thesis I used the Movement ABC-2 test instrumenttion to help analyze the ability of movement among students with specific learning disabilities in the age range from 7 to 9 years at a selected elementary school. I compared the results with students who do not have these disabilities. I also wanted to know if the three-month program will contribute to an improvement of motor abilities, especially within the balance, hand function, aiming and catching areas. I found that (using the referred instrumentation) students with specific learning disabilities achieved lower results compared to their peers. The second hypothesis was also confirmed – after the programme for improving motor abilities students with specific learning disabilities showed a progress and higher physical achievements.
