Analysis of Visual Perception of Chilren in the Appalachia Preschool Education Program.
Hines, Brainard W.
A description and application of the Frostig Developmental Test of Visual Perception are presented. The report includes a description of the Frostig as a total instrument and an overall analysis, as well as separate analyses and descriptions of each subtest. A brief summary of the experimental design and sampling plan also is included. A pilot study included administration of the Frostig to a sample of children, ages 3 to 6 years, in northern West Virginia. The results of this testing indicated overall deficits in the areas of figure-ground perception and form-constancy tasks. Results of the study indicate that paraprofessional personnel made a significant contribution in the area of same-different discrimination in terms of spacial rotation and that the television program had its major effect on eye-motor coordination, shape constancy, and the ability to conserve patterns after spatial rotation.
