Background: The general coordination abilities of children of 7-8 years will develop more effectively if in classes on physical culture to use the differentiated approach which is based on strength of the nervous system. Aim of the study: To define the influence of strength of the nervous system on the development of coordination abilities of school students. Subjects and methods: Total 60 school students from the usual comprehensive school participated in a pedagogical experiment. The age of children was 7-8 years. All school students have been differentiated in 3 groups. The level of development of the general coordination abilities was determined by the “shuttle run 3 × 10” test. In the third group children have been differentiated on subgroups taking into account strength of nervous system by a technique of “tapping-test”. Results: In 7 months of a research on indicators of school students there were changes. In KG, indicators of coordination abilities have slightly worsened from 10.3 ± 0.6 seconds to 10.4 ± 0.6 seconds (p>0.05). In EG-1 in which school students carried out physical exercises for development of coordination abilities indicators have slightly improved from 10.3 ± 0.6 seconds to 10.1 ± 0.5 seconds (p>0.05). Conclusion and recommendations: The new research has shown that if on classes in the physical culture at school, 2 times a week within 12-15 minutes to develop the general coordination abilities of children of 7-8 years, then their indicators considerably will grow. Especially at those school students who are engaged, it is differentiated, taking into account the strength of the nervous system.
