Perceptual-Motor Behavior and Educational Processes.
Cratty, Bryant J.
Addressed to elementary school and special class teachers, the text presents research-based information on perceptual-motor behavior and education, including movement and the human personality, research guidelines, and movement activities in general education. Special education is considered and perceptual motor abilities are discussed with reference to the blind, the clumsy child with minimal neurological handicaps, the mentally retarded, and the orthopedically handicapped. An appendix provides a screening test for evaluating perceptual motor attributes of neurologically and mentally handicapped children as well as a mobility orientation test for the blind. (MS)
