Background: Feedback is the effective variable on performing skills and leaning the motion and it has an important role in motion control and acquisition of motion skills. The purpose of this study was to consider the impact of awareness from different frequencies on acquisition of an aimed skill in children with Down syndrome.
Method: This study is a semi-experimental research. Participants were 18 children with Down syndrome from 7 to 10 years that selected by in access sampling and were divided equally into three groups with feedback (0%, 50%, and 100%) after pre-test performing. The participants performed over hand throwing task to the target drawn on the floor. Before the acquisition phase, participants throw 10 times as pre-test. In the acquisition phase, participants throw 60 trials. Participants received no feedback in zero percent group, in the half of trials received feedback in 50 percent group and in the whole of trials received feedback in 100 percent group.
Results: Finding of this study showed that there was significant difference between the three groups in the acquisition of skills (P<0/05) and the group with 100% feedback had better performance.
Conclusion: According to the better performance in children with Down syndrome with 100% feedback, it is recommended that we can use feedback with high frequencies in training motor skills.
