Abstract

The twofold purpose of this study was (a) to determine if motor creativity scores of preschool deaf children were significantly different from normative data of hearing peers and (b) to determine if guided movement exploration using the I CAN associated action words could improve the motor creativity of deaf children, ages 3-5. Results indicated that 24 preschool deaf children were significantly inferior to hearing children on motor creativity, as measured by the Torrance Test of Thinking Creatively in Action and Movement. Preschool deaf children exposed to 20 days of guided movement exploration on the novel London Trestle Tree Play Apparatus improved significantly over their control groups in motor creativity.
