The participants who have low-visual acuities consisted of 26 male students and 23 female students from 7 elementary special education school across the country. In addition, participants do not have any multiple disabilities except visual impairment. The sample was a purposive sampling method and it was examined and analyzed through Oseretsky test of motor proficiency The major findings of the study are summarized briefly below Fristly, comparing with total motor age and sub-categorical motor age, the results of the study, contact in the proper place for 0.89 months, contact in hand operation for 0.65 months, motor speed for 1.14 months, single operation accomplishment ability for 0.57 months were delayed. But there was a degree of development between contact in general operation for 1.25 months and same time voluntary operation for 1.29 months. There was statistically a significant differences for the results and there was statistically no significant differences for only single operation accomplishment ability Secondly, motor age delay was 48. 31 months average comparatively with chronological age and there was differences at the .001 significance level. Thirdly, There was no significance differences about gross motor abilities between male and female students who have visual impairment. But, there was a significant difference(p >.05) that female students than to the male students was delayed 7.92 months for motor speed among motor abilities in sub-category fourthly, as chronological age increasing, The development and process of the gross motor abilities of children with visual impairment little bit improved. But each age group showed motor delay from 28 months to 62.53 months and the more chronological age, the worse degree of delay The results of the study is able to provide basic information in terms of planning of subject education related motor activities, individualized education plan, and process of instruction and learning
