Abstract (English):
The article focuses on sensorimotor and perceptual processes in primary school children with multiple developmental disorders. The study involved 40 children aged 9–11 with multiple developmental issues. All the participants studied at the Secondary School of Psychological and Pedagogical Support No. 101 (Kemerovo, Russia). The experiment relied on the method developed by N. I. Ozeretskiy and M. O. Gurevich as the main diagnostic tool. The method combines a set of diagnostic tasks aimed at measuring the level of motor and perceptual development in children. The experimental study also included elements of the neuropsychological approach. The authors designed and conducted a series of practice sessions on the development of sensorimotor and perceptual processes. The neuropsychological exercises developed purposeful voluntary actions with objects and materials, improved available sensory experience, increased visual-motor coordination, sharpened the ability to navigate in various physical environments, and improved body control. They facilitated the compensation of residual reflexes, as well as the development of speech and general motor rhythmization. The exercises involved orthopedic mats, massage balls, tasks on visual-motor perception and integration, Balametrics cerebellar stimulation, etc. Statistic results showed a positive trend in the sensorimotor and perceptual processes, except for complex forms of space and time perception.
