For many years, educators have been intrigued and concerned with the relationships that exist between a child's physical development and cognitive development. Even though some researchers and authors have reported that improvement in motor ability in young children is accompanied by improvement in cognitive ability, others have found no significant relationships between these two parameters. Therefore, the research to date has generated both excitement and skepticism, resulting in increased interest in the development of perceptual-motor training programs, as well as renewed commitment to traditional physical education programs.
