Background/Objectives: The purpose of this research was to investigate effects of jump rope education as an psychomotor intervention to motor coordination of children who were diagnosed as autistic spectrum disorder. Methods/Statistical Analysis: To investigate changes of pre and post effects of motor coordination, sums of KTK test of motor quotient were compared. To analyse the data, SPSS 21.0 was used. Mean and SD were showed. To look at differences of pre and post-test within group, the paired t-test was used. All level of significance was set as a=.05. Finding: 1.Results of comparison of pre and post sum of movement index of KTK test indicated that each children showed 19%, 3%, and 16% of improvement rate 2. Results of paired t-test which applied to identify difference of pre and post-test of jump rope skill within groups pretest showed an improvement from 122±6 to 194±17. Application/Improvements: In conclusion, jump rope education through psycho motor intervention had great positive effects on improving motor coordination and jump rope skills. Keywords: psychomotor, autistic spectrum disorder, jump rope, motor coordination, rehabilitation sports, adapted physical education.
