Abstract

Learning and developmental disabilities (LDD) are associated with a reduction in motor development. A regular physical and sport activity (PSA) may have a higher impact on the cognitive function of children with LDD respect to a typically developing child. However, LDD population exhibits poor PSA and there is consensus about which type of PSA has the best outcomes on it. The present work aims to review the state of the art about the effects of PSA on children and adolescents with different LDD and to discuss didactic implications and future research directions.
