Musical Perception in the Assessment of Cognitive Devolpment.
Rider, Mark S.
Two experiments involving 40 developmentally disabled children (7 to 13 years old) and 32 normal school children (from grades 2-5) were designed to produce a cognitive assessment tool, based on musical conservation tasks, which would be particularly useful with visually handicapped children. Implications from the research were that these tasks provide music educators and therapists with a tool for determining developmental readiness needed for such cognitive-musical behaviors as note-reading, improvisation, and composition; that these tasks provide informatin concerning readiness for non-musical behaviors involving logico-mathematical operations; that this research establishes a cognitive assessment and training model for visually handicapped children; and that these tasks, in combination with Piagetian materials, provide a multisensory developmental training curriculum for normal and developmentally disabled children.
