Perceptual Motor Development. A Performance-Based Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program. Monograph 11.
Beers, Carol; And Others
The perceptual motor development module, the eleventh in a series developed for the Early Childhood-Special Education Teacher Preparation Program at the University of Virginia, provides the student with basic information on the physiological development of young children. A number of learning and measurement activities related to children's perceptual, physical, and combined perceptual motor abilities are offered. A brief narrative is given for each area of physiological development (height and weight, and skeletal, nervous, muscular and endocrine systems), followed by available ontogenetic data. Learner characteristics charts, under each of the abilities discussed, provide information on areas of development, ontogenies and conditions necessary to work effectively with certain developmental abnormalities. Much of this dodule consists of these charts and suggested learning and measurement activities. A list of appropriate cognitive competencies needed by teachers is given. (ED)
