~ is a reproducible program to help students to listen more efficiently by following directives on an assortment of grids, which will result in completed designs, figures, signs, proverbs, etc.
~ (2005) measures visual-motor ability by asking examinees to copy increasingly complex series of geometric figures and scores the results (0-3 points). This test is similar to Beery's classic DVMI and other tests of design copying ability. The range of scores makes it easy to distinguish between students with visual motor problems and those with exceptional copying skills. Results are reported in standard scores, percentiles and age equivalents. Adult norms offer a means of assessing adults who have acquired visual-motor difficulties.

Dyspraxia, visual perception disorder, and central auditory processing are also clearly explained. This booklet identifies signs of various types of sensory integration dysfunction and common therapeutic techniques. Tips are provided to help parents and teachers reinforce therapy at home and in the classroom.
~ (1996) measures visual perception using three tasks: Discrimination, Memory and Copy (construction). KVPT-D requires the individual to select the matching item from a set of alternatives. The KVPT-C consists of 3 increasingly difficult subtests requiring the individual to reproduce forms. The KVPT-M briefly exposes the individual to the form, then requires the individual to locate the target form.

~ (2006) is a quick,norm-referenced assessment of a child's ability to perceive visual information. The three 20-item subtests include: Visual Discrimination, Visual Figure-Ground, and Visual Closure. Each subtest assesses important features of visual-perception, visual processing, and pre-reading skills. The SVPSS is helpful in diagnosing children with learning disabilities, visual-perceptual deficiencies, and visual processing disorders.

~ is a three minute screen to determine if a child has sufficiently developed skills in processing sequences of syllables and sounds within common words.
RANGE: K-grade 3
ADMINISTRATION: Individual, 3 minutes
~ evaluates visual skills by indentifying whether the child is either competent or in need of remediation for perceiving visual relationships necessary for integration of letter and word shapes. The child is asked to copy a range of geometric patterns until the child reaches tepoint where errors are consistently made.
Kit includes: Directions card and 10 Booklets
RANGE: 5-8 years
ADMINSITRATION: Individual, untimed LEVEL: B
~ TVMS-R measures eye-hand coordination using a series of 23 geometric designs which are copied, then measured using the following performance classifications: closure, angles, line intesections, size rotation, line length, under or over-penetration, and design modification. The scoring system features a revised multi-point system allowing greater discrimination of problem areas.
An alternate scoring method has been developed for scoring only the most common types of visual motor errors (rated 0,1,2 or 3). This method provides supplementary information only and is more time consuming than the regular scoring method.

There are still 16 plates in each of the 7 areas measured, so the length of the test remains the same as previous editions: (1) Visual Discrimination, (2) Visual Memory,
(3) Visual Spacial Relationships, (4) Form Constancy, (5) Visual Sequential Memory, (6) Figure-Ground & (7) Visual Closure

RANGE: K - grade 4
ADMINISTRATION: Individual, 10-15 minutes LEVEL: B
~ (2006) was formerly entitled The Minnesota Perception Diagnostic Test. ViMo provides a quick screen for visual-motor impairment. It consists of six Gestalt designs that the respondent is asked to reproduce. Based on the degree of rotation and the number of separations and distortions, results indicate the type of visual-motor impairment and the likelihood of a learning or behavioral problem, emotional or personality disturbance, brain damage, or other organic mental disorder.
The author asserts that by controlling for age and IQ, ViMo can provide a more accurate measure of visual motor abilities.
A four-step diagnostic process is used to to guide the clinician when using the rotation, separation, and distortion scores to determine which diagnostic group is most likely related to various types of impairment.
ViMo's non-verbal format is ideal for use with respondents from different environmental and educational backgrounds.
The ViMo assessment is based on 35 years of diagnostic data and research on visual-motor performance. Normative data is based on large child and adult samples—over 12,000 respondents in total.
Kit includes Manual 2 sets of test cards and 25 record forms
RANGE: 6 +years
