Objective of the study was to provide theoretical substantiation, develop and test by experiment the methodology of development of movement coordination skills in the 9-11 year-old schoolchildren with spastic diplegia and hemiparetic cerebral palsy (Level I of gross motor function).
Methods and structure of the study. The article presents the methodology of development of movement coordination skills in the 9-11 year-old schoolchildren with spastic diplegia and hemiparetic cerebral palsy (Level I of gross motor function according to the International Gross Motor Function Classification Systems). In developing the methodology, we assessed the level of development of the subjects’ movement coordination skills. Subject to the study were 76 trainees of the adaptive educational institutions in Omsk, Kemerovo, Novokuznetsk, Krasnoyarsk, and Nur-Sultan. Therefore, we identified the benchmark indicators of the level of development of movement coordination skills.
Results and conclusions. The developed methodology enables to assess the level of development of motor coordination skills, differentially foster the lagging skills and maintain the well-developed ones. Based on the data obtained, we selected the exercise sets to develop the mentioned skills (represented schematically). Another feature of the developed method is the use of biocontrol by stabilogram. This technology enables not only to develop movement coordination skills but also to facilitate the information perceiving by means of accessible and comprehensible audio-visual signals, which is especially relevant when training students with health limitations.

Keywords: movement coordination skills, infantile cerebral palsy, spastic diplegia, hemiparetic form, Level I of gross motor function.
