ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to examine the relationships among self-esteem, executive function, music ability and perceptual motor skills for young children. The subjects of this study were 202 kindergarten-aged children, their average age being 59.87 months. The measurement instruments ‘The Perceptual Motor Skills Assessment’, ‘The Self Esteem Assessment for Young Children’,‘Cognitive Emotional Executive Function Assessment’, and‘Primary Measures of Music Audiation; PMMA) were used to collect data, which was analysed using T-tests and stepwise regression analysis. Results showed positive correlations among self-esteem, executive function, music ability, and perceptual motor skills for young children. Additionally, executive function and self-esteem were found to be a significant predictive variables for impact on children’s perceptual motor skills. Also, analysis by sub-area showed cognitive executive function, a sub-area of executive function, to be a significant predictive variable, with emotional executive function, a sub-area of executive function, and social self-esteem, a sub-area of self-esteem, as additional predictive variables. The results of this study have meaningful implications for the development of educational plans to understand and cultivate perceptual motor skills in young children.
