Motor, Auditory, and Visual Development--A Taxonomy for Diagnosis and Training.
Zaeske, Arnold
The basis of perception is found in the sensory experiences of an individual. Cognition, in turn, may be thought of as organized perceptions. Hence, diagnosis of learning disabilities should start with an assessment of the sensory skills in order to gain insight into the probable perceptual and cognitive problems involved in learning. The taxonomy presented in this paper illustrates the relationship of the sensory skills to both perception and cognition and shows the various facets of the sensory skills in relation to each other and to the perceptual-cognitive process. Further, the taxonomy could be useful in providing a base for a diagnostic testing procedure in schools or clinics. A skeleton outline of a protocol for the administration of various sensory tests and a representative list of tests which may aid in the diagnosis of the various visual abilities are provided. A list of references concludes the paper. (TO)
