The Draw-a-Person Task in Persons with Mental Retardation: What Does It Measure?
Dykens, Elisabeth
Research in Developmental Disabilities, v17 n1 p1-13 Jan-Feb 1996
Draw-a-Person (DAP) samples from 108 adolescents and adults with mental retardation were scored using Naglieri's cognitive and emotional disturbance scoring systems. Visual-motor skills emerged as the best predictor of DAP cognitive scores, more predictive than intelligence. Findings suggest caution in using DAP as an index of intelligence or as a screen for emotional disturbances. (Author/DB)
