Abstract

Nowadays a great number of evidences seems to prove that the movement plays a central role in the integration of different mental processes. The visual-motor feedback may be considered the first sensorial integration of the development. The importance of an effective support to the pre-adolescent development of the sensory-motor integration ability seems one of most important aim that every school system should follow. The aim of this research is to investigate and monitor on international scale if the current Italian and Indian schools systems can adequately support the development of the student's sensory-motor integration ability. According to the data showed in this paper, it is clear that the scores obtained by the Italian and Indian students are lower than the international mean. However if a wider analysis based on a larger and more representative sample of the two Countries should confirm the output of this research, it will be clear that the two school systems cannot effectively support the development of the visual-motor integration abilities of the students. If the trend showed in this work should be confirmed by future and more precise researches, it will be necessary an accurate analysis aimed to identify the possible reasons of this phenomenon and the possible school support, since without them, a whole generation of students will risk to reduce the cultural level of the two nations and to be not competitive on an international level.
