Perceptual Skills Curriculum: Visual-motor Skills, Program 1.
This curriculum is designed primarily for use in individualized classrooms where the teacher is working with an assistant, but it has also been proven effective in traditional classrooms and in remedial situations. Program 1 focuses on the basic abilities children use to analyze and organize graphic and other spatial patterns--skills directly prerequisite to primary arithmetic and, to a lesser extent, spelling and beginning reading. This program contains the following: a statement of the 24 behavioral objectives arranged in a sequence of increasing complexity and a general description of the rationale upon which they are based; a test for each of the 24 behavioral objectives and standard procedures for their administration; an inventory of learning activities designed to assist the child in mastering the behavioral objectives; and management procedures for this component.
