The Relationship Between the Cognitive, Conceptual, Emotional, and Perceptual-Motor Development in Disadvantaged Kindergarteners.
Corwin, Sheila; Strum, Irene
The study was undertaken to determine the possibility of a relationship between the selected traits of cognitive ability, conceptual development, emotional maturity, and perceptual-motor development in disadvantaged kindergarten children, since the knowledge of the relationship between traits might make it possible to strengthen a child's deficiencies in one area through training in a related area. All incoming kindergarteners in an urban elementary school in a small city in Westchester County, New York were screened early in kindergarten using the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test, the Boehm Test of Basic Concepts, and the Goodenough-Harris Drawing Test. A significant positive correlation between each of the selected traits was found. (Author/MS)
