"PANESS" battery was administered to a total sample of 120 students of five age specific groups of children from two schools catering to the needs of different socio-economic classes. Most commonly observed item was overflow/higher movements (5, N = 24) followed by motor inco-ordination and dysdiadochokinesia, maximally present in the age group of 7 to 8 (6, N = 24). Further results suggest different patterns across various age groups and that there may be a significant correlation between handedness and soft neurological signs. The implications of these findings have been discussed in the paper.
