dc.description.abstract The purpose of the study was to determine if developmental differences existed between two age groups of children on a standardized measure of sensory and motor functions. Gender differences were also examined, as well as the gender-age interaction.Subjects were 119 normal children (55 males and 64 females). Classification of subjects into one of the two groups was based on age. Group 1 subjects ranged in age from 48 through 95 months (4 through 7 years), and Group 2 subjects ranged from 96 months ranged 167 months (8 through 13 years).The multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) indicated a significant main effect for age. The main effect for gender, and the age by gender interaction was not significant. A univariate analysis of variance was computed for age on each measure and indicated that only Visual Confrontation was not significant. Implications of these findings are discussed. en_US
