Attentional control is a group of processes that occur within the learner's brain to complete motor, perceptual, or cognitive tasks. It consists of three processes: attention, selection, and control.


The search includes the following terms: The significance of the research resides in attentional control and its relationship to some basic motor skills in young children (5-6) years old. It was discovered that there is a need to explore the relationship between attentional control modifiers and some motor skills through the researchers' firsthand observation of children's basic motions and personal interviews with specialists in the field of kindergarten. For children (5-6) years old, the researchers believe that the sources of hesitation and fear of injury are among the main reasons affecting attentional control, and thus the latter affects the performance of basic skills, and thus the goal of the research is to identify attentional control in children (5-6) years old. And, in order to determine the relationship between attentional control and some fundamental motor skills, and in light of the research purpose, the researchers hypothesized: There is no relationship between attentional control and certain basic motor skills for children (5-6) years old.

To achieve the research's purpose, the research areas and tools were established, as well as how much the research instruments were used to get the results and where they were presented, examined, and debated. As a result, the researchers arrived at the study's conclusions and suggestions
