A Study of the Effectiveness of a Non-Specialist in Remediating Visual-Motor Skills in a Title I School.
Dickerson, John N.
The study was designed to experimentally determine the rate of growth as it pertained to visual motor development of an experimental and a control group by using a resource teacher as the vehicle to administer the remediation. The study lasted for 7 months. Beery's Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration was administered in a pretest and posttest format to 93 first grade students. The experimental group experienced the Frostig Developmental remediation materials using either the first level of the eye or motor coordination materials. The experimental group met in groups of about 11 children for a period of 30 minutes twice weekly. Seven samples of remediation are included in the form of photographs. Comparison of pretest and posttest scores showed that the experimental group gained 3 months of visual motor growth above the control group. The growth was considered statistically significant. (CB)
