The Design Board Program.
This paper describes a visual-motor training program that has been successfully implemented with children aged 3-11. Various studies related to the development of children's visual-motor skills are reviewed and a rationale associated with the teaching of appropriate visual-motor processes is explained. Application of this rationale to the visual analysis skills used in copying is proposed. A hierarchy of objectives and criterion-referenced tests are presented together with instructional methods. The Design Board Program is suggested as a useful method of teaching the child to analyze concrete visual information. A number of validation studies are cited and briefly described. Additional studies are in progress. (Author/LR)
