The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of training orienteering skills and basic movement on orienteering skills and advanced motion of male individuals with visual impairment in 2012- 2013 academic year. This study employed a quasi-experimental, single group pretest-posttest design. The study population consists of all male students 5 to 14 years who were blind and visually impaired in Tehran in the academic year 2012- 2013. The total number of accessible population were 80 subjects who were from preschool and elementary and junior high schools in Tehran (the complex for blinds martyr mohebi , KhazaeliSchool ) and all blind students studying in schools in 22 districts of Tehran were selected. In this study Lincoln Oseretsky's questionnaire was used. Students were trained in 12 sessions. The results of multivariate analysis of covariance showed a significant difference between experimental and control groups in sub variables of static balance (0.01> P, 7.25 = F), fine motor (0.01> P, 14.56 = F), gross motor (0.01> P, 11.85 = F), coordination of both hands (0.01> P, 8.45 = F), coordination of hands and feet (0.01> P, 22.42 = F) and motor skills (0.01> P, 8.99 = F) was statistically significant . But for variables of Eye hand coordination (0.05> P, 1.20 = F) and speed of movement (0.05> P, 1.20 = F) there is no significant difference. Thus, based on the findings obtained from this study is worthy That paying particular attention to the more the capabilities of blind children in various fields, in particular motor skills and it is generally the basis of age, . Because increase the autonomy of these people and the level of public health.
