A Perceptuo-Cognitive-Motor Approach to the Special Child.
Kornblum, Rena Beth
A movement therapist reviews ways in which a perceptuo-cognitive approach can help handicapped children in learning and in social adjustment. She identifies specific auditory problems (hearing loss, sound-ground confusion, auditory discrimination, auditory localization, auditory memory, auditory sequencing), visual problems (visual acuity, figure-ground confusion, visual discrimination, visual localization, visual memory, and visual sequencing), and motor problems (physical handicaps, coordination, body image, spatial awareness, kinesthetic memory, and motor sequencing.) She discusses ideas for mainstreamed children with auditory, visual, or motor problems, and then details perceptuo-cognitive motor games designed to remediate the problems. (CL)
