Neuropsychological and Perceptual-Motor Theories of Treatment for Children with Educational Inadequacies.
Kershner, John R.; Bauer, David H.
Two divergent approaches to the treatment of children with nonprogressive brain injury (the medical or neuropsychological and the educational or perceptual-motor) are discussed and compared by treatment rationale, models of the perceptual process, etiology, and organization theory. A guide to a comprehensive theory of development, based on stimulation of the central nervous system, is presented; and, by placing the two theories in perspective, a treatment rationale is derived from the similarities of their methods. The design of a theoretical model based on the latest neurological findings is suggested. Recommendations for research, a pilot study on the neuropsychological method, a developmental profile chart, and a 33-item bibliography are included. (DF)
