Introduction: In addition to coordination and motor difficulties, one of the main problems in children with developmental coordination disorder that prevents them from learning in early childhood education is a defect in executive functions. In recent years, the tendency to use novel therapeutic approaches for children with executive dysfunctions has increased. Cognitive rehabilitation or training in executive functions is an approach that has received much attention in recent years. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of the Table Tennis Training Program on sustained attention and cognitive flexibility in children with developmental coordination disorder. Materials and Methods: The research method was quasi-experimental with a pretest-posttest design. The statistical population of this study was all children aged 9-12 years with developmental coordination disorder in Kermanshah, Iran. Subjects in this study were 20 children with developmental coordination disorder who were selected by convenience sampling and were randomly assigned into two control and experimental groups. The tools of this study were Wilson Developmental Coordination Disorders Questionnaire, Movement Assessment Buttery for Children, Computerized Continuous Performance, and Wisconsin Card Sorting Test. Before and after the intervention program, sustained attention and cognitive flexibility of all subjects were measured. Table Tennis Training Program was held in the gym for 12 weeks and twice a week for 70 minutes. Results: The results showed a significant improvement in sustained attention and cognitive flexibility in children with developmental coordination disorder following 12 weeks of Table Tennis Training. Conclusion: Table tennis training has improved sustained attention and cognitive flexibility in children with developmental coordination disorder. These data suggest the benefits of exercise programs based on Training of executive functions and high attentional load in children with coordination disorder.
