Samenvatting

This pilot study aims to reveal pitfalls and other problems for a future long term study. We recruited 10 children diagnosed with DS. Half of the children received Padovan and the other half Psychomotor Therapy during the 10 weeks of this study. We measured motor and language skills with standardized tests at the beginning (T1) and at the end of the study (T2). We were interested in three aspects. First, we analyzed the results of all ten children, regardless of therapy, on their progress over the ten weeks. Secondly, we separated the results into motor and speech dimensions. The results of these dimensions were compared to the general findings of the literature portrayed in section one. Thirdly, the measurements from T2 of the two intervention groups were compared to T1 to see if any improvement occurred. Our hypothesis was that no differences would be found in motor or language skills in the entire population, the Padovan or the Psychomotor group comparing T2 to T1. Our second hypothesis was that no differences would be found between the motor and language abilities of the subjects participating in this study and that of individuals with DS described by the literature in section one.
