Although research has demonstrated that VMI scores are a predictor of handwriting legibility Brossard-Racine et al.

Test—retest reliability ranges from. The VMI is a standardized, norm-referenced assessment involving copying geometric forms that is used to determine the level of integration between visual and motor systems in people of all ages. Although it includes both manuscript and cursive booklets, only manuscript writing was assessed for our purposes. In this edition we have also combined the child and adult forms making it more convenient if you work with clients of different ages.

The Short and Full Format tests can be administered individually or to groups. Starter Kit””addtocartitemid”: Method Research Design This study was part of a larger study designed to investigate the effect of the Size Matters Handwriting Program SMHP on handwriting legibility in kindergartners, first graders, and second graders.

Results are carefully analyzed, and parents are advised not to judge the child’s skills until they have discussed the test with the pediatrician, neurologist, or tfst who will use the results in conjunction with other developmental tests in order to make a diagnosis or recommendations for therapy.

Abstract We determined whether a widely used assessment of visual—motor skills, the Beery—Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual—Motor Integration VMIis appropriate for use as an outcome measure for handwriting interventions. American Journal of Occupational Therapy45— The manual also presents teaching suggestions. Many examiners find the age norm information to be useful in helping parents better understand their child’s current level of development.


These findings show that the experimental and control groups had similar VMI scores before the intervention, but even after the viusal-motor group received the intervention, their VMI scores and the over-time change in the VMI scores were not significantly different from the corresponding scores in the control group.

Now includes a CD that allows y.

My Book of Letters and Numbers””addtocartitemid”: No significant baseline differences were found between the experimental and control groups on any variable for kindergarten, first-grade, and second-grade students and for the whole sample.

Institutional review board approval was obtained, as well as consent from the parents of all participants. More than activities for teachers to use with children from birth through age 6.

Paired t tests showed that the over-time changes in VMI scores were not significant ibtegration the experimental group, meaning that despite receiving the intervention, postintervention scores of children in that group were not significantly higher than their preintervention scores.

Motor learning theory emphasizes the need for consistent practice for permanent learning to take place and for a skill such as handwriting or shape copying to become automatic Poole, Some visual construction tests are designed to test memory by asking the child to draw a familiar object.

Beery VMI Stepping Stones Parent Checklist – A consumable checklist of more than key developmental “stepping stones” designed to help parents note observations of children from pre-kindergarten through early elementary age in non-school settings.

In addition, results of this study support previous research identifying correlations between the constructs of visual—motor integration as measured by the VMI and vidual-motor. The MHA is norm referenced for the second half of first grade and all of second grade; therefore, it was administered to only the first and second graders in this study.

Likewise, no significant differences were found between the experimental groups in each grade. Includes a CD for printing copies of the activities. Slightly less than half of the sample, ranging between It is important to ensure that measurement tools are appropriate for, and sensitive to, the construct being measured, which in turn must be the construct that the intervention is addressing.

A raw score based on the number of correct copies is converted based on norms for each age group, and results are reported deelopmental converted scores and percentiles. The THS—R is a comprehensive handwriting assessment standardized for administration to children ages 6—18 yr. The children were all between 5 and 8 years old.
