Children with Minimal Brain Damage: Prognosis for the Remediation of Motor Problems.
Cratty, Bryant J.
Reported was a program designed to explore the remediation of motor problems among minimally brain damaged children. In an initial testing session the children were exposed to a six category test of gross motor functioning, the first part of the Frostig Developmental Test of Visual Perception, a self concept test, a games choice test, and other tasks designed for the subjective evaluation of motor function. Children participated in classes which exposed them to tasks which both were taxing but able to be performed, as well as to tasks which were stressful to a slight degree. Conclusions such as the following were drawn: younger children with slight problems are most amenable to change; approximately 80% of the children referred were males; and hand eye control is improvable not only with the application of remedial measures involving practice, but also with the application of medication in hyperactive children.
