The society has been concerned to provide quality of life for people with disabilities. When it comes to people in disability situation, the role of physical education is especially relevant, since it can contribute significantly to the improvement of motor skills and physical condition, in turn, responsible for too typical behavior of human beings. In the case of Rubinstein Taybi Syndrome (SRT), the literature shows that there are numerous difficulties of a physical and motor that affect people, SRT is characterized by: - short stature; - Face feature; - Small head; - Slightly deformed ears; - Mental retardation; - Pulmonary stenosis; - Keloid formation in surgical scars; - Foramen magnum extended; - Vertebral and sternal abnormalities; - Thick or curved eyebrows; - Hyperextensible joints; - Pelvis small and inclined; - Stereotyped behavior: clap and sway the body when nervous or anxious. A person with SRT do not need all the features of the syndrome, but a combination of them. Baby stimulation and early intervention are highly recommended for the child with SRT. Appropriate stimuli engines through intervention programs may favor the acquisition of new functions, thus providing the best adaptation of environmental factors and aging to contribute to the education movement, body awareness and her own interaction with the environment. Motor development isintrinsically linked to cognitive and affective areas of human behavior. Thus, each individual is unique in its development and progress to the level that was determined by its environmental and biological conditions together with the special needs of the motor task. The study will contribute to the development of an overview of child motor development with Rubstein Taybi syndrome, and generate ideas and perspectives to other areas. Consist in a case study research exploratory, descriptive and qualitative type, with the aim of analyzing the effects of a motor stimulation program for a child with SRT; propose activities that promote motor development of the child; improve motor skills allowing higher levels of functioning in activities of daily life. A ten years old carrier of the syndrome is a participant in this study. Data collection was performed using the Motor Evaluation Kit Rosa Neto, video camera and computer. Data were organized and analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively. It appears in this study that WFP provided a decrease in risk factors imposed by motor condition Yasmin, giving it autonomy in activities of daily living and consequently improved quality of life.
