Handbook of Remedial or Developmental Activities to Accompany the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities.
Brown, Drucilla, Comp.
This handbook, intended to accompany the Illinois Test of Psycholinguistic Abilities, describes numerous remedial and developmental activities for perceptual motor and psychomotor skills. Observable classroom behaviors associated with various perceptual motor and psychomotor disabilities (visual-motor channel disability, auditory-vocal channel disability, decoding process disability, association process disability, endcoding process disability, auditory-vocal automatic disability, and sequencing disability) are identified, along with suggested individual and group teaching techniques. Discussed are remedial and developmental activities designed to improve auditory reception, visual reception, visual sequential memory, auditory association, auditory sequential memory, visual-motor association, verbal expressions or encoding, manual expressions, motor coordination and perception, visual closure, and grammatic closure. Activities such as the following are recommended: associating directional movements with drawing of a line on chalkboard or paper (visual reception), tracing dot-to-dot pictures (visual sequential memory), asking cause and effect questions related to noise making activities (auditory association), making scrapbooks on a certain theme such as facial expressions, furniture, or toys (visual-motor association), and role playing with homemade costumes, situations or puppets (verbal expressions). Records, tapes, and books related to the above disability areas are listed in the appendixes. (GW)
