Abstract

Previous research has found a connection between the development of executive function (EF) skills (planning, problem-solving and inhibitory control) and motor skill ability. Children from economically disadvantaged backgrounds have consistently scored lower on EF tasks compared to less disadvantage children. In the current study 3-5 year-olds from low socioeconomic areas were assessed for motor abilities and executive function skills. Executive function and motor abilities were positively correlated
