This article presents a review of the "Beery Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration" (6th edition). The "Beery Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration" is a newly updated measure of visual-motor abilities for individuals aged 2 to 100 years that principally represents a normative update from the fifth edition. Published by Pearson, it is primarily used in educational, medical, and research settings with individuals who may have difficulties with visual-motor integration to acquire necessary services for these individuals, to evaluate the success of educational and other interventions, and for use as a research tool. The Beery VMI-6 may be a good initial measure in an assessment battery, particularly with children, as the enjoyment and feelings of success through drawing can help establish rapport. The Beery VMI-6 is classified as a Level B, Q1, Q2 measure, meaning that administrators are required to have a bachelor's degree in psychology or formal training in another related field with specific training in assessment.
