RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PERCEPTION AND LEARNING IN THE MENTALLY RETARDED.
JOHNSON, G. ORVILLE
SUPPORTIVE EVIDENCE IS GIVEN AGAINST PERCEPTUAL DISORDERS CREATING INTERFERENCE IN LEARNING. THE CONTENTION THAT A PERCEPTUAL FIGURE GROUND DISTURBANCE NECESSARILY INTERFERES WITH THE LEARNING PROCESS IS NOT SUPPORTED BY THE EVIDENCE. THERE ARE INDICATIONS, HOWEVER, THAT BACKGROUND INTERFERENCE SEEMS TO AFFECT SOME CHILDREN MORE THAN OTHERS. TWO UNIQUE FEATURES OF THE PRESENT STUDY ARE THE INCLUSION OF AN AUDITORY FIGURE-BACKGROUND TEST FOR SELECTION PURPOSES, TWO AUDITORY LEARNING TESTS, AND ONE VISUAL-AUDITORY LEARNING TEST.
