The Level of Drawing Performance and the State of Motor Functions in Children with Schizophrenia

1581

Abstract

The article discusses the pilot study in which the level of performance of a drawing technique was used to study the fine motor skills in children from 7 to 11 years old. We present the results of the assessment of fine motor skills in children with schizophrenia (EG, 40 subjects) in comparison with healthy peers (CG, 30 subjects). The following methods were used in the study: Psychological Educational Test (PEP) and «Picture Yourself» technique. Considering the PEP results it was shown that the level of development of gross and fine motor skills in children with schizophrenia differs and three subgroups EG1, EG2, EG3 were formed. The peculiarity of drawing performance of children with schizophrenia compared to healthy peers was shown on a number of parameters. The quality of patients' drawings lowered from SHG1 to SHG3 in accordance with deterioration of motor skills.
