TESTS USED TO MEASURE SUCH DEFICIENCIES WERE THE BENDER TEST AND THE FROSTIG TEST OF VISUAL PERCEPTION, SUB-TEST I AND III. MATCHED PAIRS WERE SELECTED FROM THE TOTAL GROUP SCREENED AND EXPERIMENTAL AND CONTROL GROUPS ESTABLISHED. EMPHASIS IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP WAS PLACED UPON THE USE OF FROSTIG AND WINTERHAVEN TRAINING MATERIALS. MANY OTHER ACTIVITIES WERE USED WHICH RELATED TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF EYE-MOTOR COORDINATION, LATERALITY BALANCE, AND VISUAL PERCEPTION. THE PROJECT BEGAN WITH A SIX WEEK IN-SERVICE TRAINING PROGRAM FOR THE TEACHERS. DURING THE COURSE OF THE YEAR, THE PUPILS WERE TESTED WITH THE BALANCE OF THE FROSTIG BATTERY AND THE KUHLMANN-ANDERSON TEST. A MID-YEAR EVALUATION WAS MADE USING FROSTIG SUB-TEST I AND II.
