A Study of the Factor Involved in Audio and Visual Coordination Affecting Language Delayed Children. Final Report.
Holloway, Gordon F.
The visual-auditory integrative ability of 12 language delayed children with nonspecific etiologies was compared with that of 12 normal children matched for age, sex, and IQ. A battery of tests measured auditory-visual integrative ability, visual motor ability, and perception of frequency distorted speech. Significant differences were found between the two groups in their visual-auditory integrative ability and the perception of frequency distorted speech. There was no difference between the two groups in visual motor integrative ability. Inasmuch as the two groups were significantly different for the auditory perceptual task it was difficult to determine whether the differences which exist between the two groups in the area of auditory-visual integrative skills were due to poor integration between these two modalities or due merely to the auditory component.
