With this study, it will be tried to determine whether the addition of physiotherapy program to the education of mentally disabled individuals is effective and necessary in terms of mental performance.


Mental disability levels IQ = 50-79 individuals with mild / border mental disabilities will be included in the study. The disability status of the individuals will be determined by the health report, and the cognitive status of the individuals will be determined by the report given as a result of the evaluation made by the Guidance Research Centers of the National Education Directorates. The 45-person study group will be randomized to 3 groups of 15 persons each. The first group will not be subjected to any application except education. The second group will be the control group and will be taken to the balance training in addition to normal education. In the third group, dual task balance training will be applied within the scope of cognitive rehabilitation
