Abstract Children with intellectual disabilities (ID) exhibit numerous impairments in different domains of functioning. Alongside impairments in cognitive, social and adaptive behavior, they also report lower levels of physical fitness at all stages of life. Therefore, they often have difficulty walking, climbing stairs, balancing and standing. Their limited movements are a common occurrence. However, not only children with intellectual disabilities but also children with autism spectrum disorders have motor problems. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by social and communicative deficits as well as a wide range of behavioral symptoms. For years, ASD has not been seen as a central deficit due to overwhelming problems in socialization and communication. Recent studies, however, reveal that motor deficits are also fundamental to the presentation of ASD and contribute to the underlying symptoms of the disorder. Motor problems can accumulate into adolescence and adulthood, resulting in long-term physical, psychological, and behavioral problems in people with both autism and mental retardation. Thus, the ability to understand and deal with a child's overall picture, including motor dysfunction, is an insurmountable need. The aim of the study is to investigate the motor profile of students with mental retardation and autism spectrum disorder. 30 students aged 14-21, who attend the Special Laboratories of Special Education and Training (E.E.E.K) in Crete took part in the research. First, the motor skills of the research sample measured and then analyzed with the SPSS statistical package. The measuring tool used to evaluate these skills is the Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT-2).
