Perceptual Training, The State of the Art.
Frostig, Marianne
The author discusses the role of perceptual training in the education of young perceptually handicapped children. Distinctions are drawn between perception and awareness, and the necessity of stimulation to encourage infant and child learning is emphasized. Commonalities between perception and learning are underscored. The author stresses that perceptual training should continue with retarded and learning deficient children as long as improvement in perceptual skills is observed. The evaluation of visual perception through the Marianne Frostig Developmental Test of Visual Perception is discussed in detail, and other approaches to perceptual assessment are considered. (CL)
