Kirshner Saroj Visual Perceptual Speed Test: A Test of Visual Readiness for Reading.
Kirshner, A. J.; Saroj, Satish K.
Described is the Kirshner Saroj Visual Perception Speed Test (KSVPST), a measure of perceptual speed using pictures to identify children whose reading difficulties are due to visual processing deficiencies. It is explained that 323 children 6-13 years old were given the Keystone Visual Skills Test, the KSVPST, and reading readiness tests. Data are said to indicate that perceptual speed is significantly related to reading ability. The author suggests that visual training to increase perceptual speed should be considered as part of a total program for children with reading problems. Among seven appendixes is information on the validity and reliability of the KSVPST. (CL)
