attribute measured by the Interception game. The ω -coefficient of the Swiftness game was 0.68 which was closer to the recommended 0.7 ( Nunnally & Bernstein, 1994 ). Thus, it was accepted that Swiftness variables were indeed measuring the ability of participants to combine and perform various locomotor

points. Overall, these studies demonstrate TGMD-2 mean locomotor scores ranging from 10.5 to 42.7 and mean object control scores from 10.2 to 39.5. Past research using the BOT-2 to determine MC also reported a wide variation of ability. Youth with ID from the United States (US), South Korea, and Taiwan

girls for object control skills compared with locomotor skills ( Barnett et al., 2016 ). One skill was the focus for each session and a variety of activities were included to develop and practice this skill within this time. This was delivered through modified sports and games, which were appropriate to

Interest in intersegmental coordination during locomotion (eg, between the low back and pelvis or between foot segments) has continued to increase. 1 – 6 Investigating intersegmental coordination of different types of locomotor movements can provide more insight into the processes used by the

consequences of locomotor experience in infants with and without developmental disabilities ( Campos et al., 2000 ; Dahl et al., 2013 ; Feldner, Logan, & Galloway, 2016 ; Huang & Chen, 2017 ; Uchiyama et al., 2008 ).

This is of note because tasks designed to measure aerobic capacity require children to execute an efficient running pattern to be
