Abstract: In this study, it was aimed to investigate the realizability levels of movements requiring displacement and object control by children with learning disability. 24 students with learning disability studying in special education subclasses in the schools of Ministry of National Education in Kars participated in the study. The required approval was received for the study and the permission letters for the study were collected from the children's families. “Basic Movements Check Lists” (BMCL), the reliability and validity studies of which were performed by (Gürsel and Yıldız 2008), was developed as a data collection tool. This form consists of 2 sections. The data were collected using Displacement Movements in Section I and the Movements Requiring Object Control in Section II. Data were summarized by giving the mean and standard deviation. T-test analysis was performed in the associations, and 0.05 significance level was taken into account in the interpretation of results. According to findings, when the experimental and control groups were compared before and after the application, it was concluded that the movements requiring displacement and object control could be realized by the children with learning disability in the experimental group, and this was significant at p<0.01 level.
