BEHAVIORAL AND LEARNING DISABILITIES ASSOCIATED WITH COGNITIVE-MOTOR DYSFUNCTION. INTERIM REPORT.
BRAUN, JEAN S.; RUBIN, ELI Z.
THIS REPORT EXAMINES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BEHAVIORAL AND ACADEMIC DISABILITIES AND COGNITIVE-MOTOR DYSFUNCTION AS REVEALED BY DATA ON 400 ELEMENTARY SCHOOL CHILDREN. THE BEHAVIOR CHECKLIST WAS USED AS A BASIS FOR SAMPLE SELECTION. BEHAVIOR CLUSTERS REFLECTING BOTH ANTI-SOCIAL TENDENCIES AND UNASSERTIVE, WITHDRAWN BEHAVIOR WERE IDENTIFIED. A BATTERY OF TESTS WAS DEVELOPED FOR MEASUREMENT OF NINE COGNITIVE-MOTOR DIMENSIONS AND ADMINISTERED TO 198 MALADJUSTED CHILDREN AND 200 NORMAL SUBJECTS. THE DISTRIBUTION OF SCORES FOR THE MALADJUSTED CHILDREN WAS BIMODAL. ONE SUBGROUP SHOWED MINIMAL DIFFICULTY. THE SUBGROUP GAVE EVIDENCE OF POOR FUNCTIONING. A COMPARISON OF HIGH AND LOW DYSFUNCTION EXPERIMENTAL SUBJECTS ON BEHAVIOR RATINGS SUGGESTS A RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN CERTAIN TYPES OF BEHAVIOR MALADJUSTMENT, ESPECIALLY DISORIENTED BEHAVIOR, AND COGNITIVE-MOTOR PERFORMANCE. INDIVIDUALS SHOWING BOTH BEHAVIOR MALADJUSTMENT AND ACADEMIC RETARDATION DO POOREST ON TESTS OF COGNITIVE MOTOR FUNCTIONING. (PS)
