Gross Motor Assessment Results and Placement in Physical Education of Five Students with CHARGE Syndrome

Linda Hilgenbrinck, Lauren Cavanaugh, Lauren J. Lieberman


Students with CHARGE Syndrome often have performance difficulties with a variety of motor skills and balance activities. Using a case study approach, the characteristics, assessment results, eligibility, and instructional placement of five students with CHARGE Syndrome in physical education (PE), are shared. Students (2 girls, M = 50 months; 3 boys, M = 64 months) were tested using the test of gross motor development (TGMD2) and informal observation. Locomotor performance of the students noted delays ranging from 5 to 53 months, while object control performance delays ranging from 6 to 41 months. All five students with CHARGE Syndrome qualified for adapted physical education (APE) services supported by an individualized education program (IEP). Their placement decisions are reviewed and described.
