The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between antigravity control and postural control in 6 and 7 year old children. This study was a continuation of a study done by Sellers (1988) on 4 and 5 year olds which showed a significant relationship between antigravity and postural control for this age group. Prone extension and supine flexion quantity and quality were used for tests of antigravity control while static and dynamic balance quantity and quality were used for tests of postural control. Forty one six and seven year old children from local school systems were tested. The study results showed no significant relationship between antigravity control and postural control and no significant differences between sexes for this age group.
