Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Psychomotricity is a discipline that intends to support the evolutionary processes of childhood based on a holistic vision of the child and using play and the body as preferential tools in interaction. Although preventive and promotional psychomotor intervention in preschool is widespread in Italy and in Europe, there are few experimental studies that testify to its effectiveness. The review work carried out allowed us to identify the positive effect of the psychomotor intervention on multiple areas of development, such as motor, cognitive and emotional-relational, and on some specific competences, in some cases highlighted by the literature as predictive of a better psychosocial well-being in adolescence and adulthood. The interpretation of our results, while taking into account the objective limits of the study, offers important insights for future interventions.
