Title Rough Motor Development of Children with Intellectual Disabilities Age 8-10 Years
Creator Amin, Andres
Description Intellectual disability is a term used when there are limits to a person’s ability to learn at an expected level and function in daily life. Levels of intellectual disability vary greatly in children. Children with intellectual disability might have a hard time letting others know their wants and needs, and taking care of themselves. Intellectual disability could cause a child to learn and develop more slowly than other children of the same age. It could take longer for a child with intellectual disability to learn to speak, walk, dress, or eat without help, and they could have trouble learning in school. Intellectual disability can be caused by a problem that starts any time before a child turns 18 years old – even before birth. It can be caused by injury, disease, or a problem in the brain. For many children, the cause of their intellectual disability is not known. Some of the most common known causes of intellectual disability – like Down syndrome, fetal alcohol syndrome, fragile X syndrome, genetic conditions, birth defects, and infections – happen before birth. Others happen while a baby is being born or soon after birth. Still other causes of intellectual disability do not occur until a child is older; these might include serious head injury, stroke, or certain infections. This study aims to determine the development of gross motor in children with intellectual disabilities age 8-10 years. This research was conducted at SLB Negeri Surakarta. Data collection techniques such as interviews, observation and documentation. Data analysis techniques use descriptive qualitative using the Miles and Huberman model. Based on the results of this research is that some children with intellectual disabilities age 8-10 years of age experiencing no physical abnormalities, they also have problems in walking, running, jumping, balance, turning, bending, throwing, catching, and kicking. Thus it can be seen that the motor development of children with intellectual disabilities age 8-10 years are under normal children. This is due to the intelligence of the under-femoral child who is under 70/75 so that they have difficulty in coordinating the movement.
