Visual perception--Testing; Marianne Frostig Developmental Test of Visual Perception


In the area of academics and readiness, the question of visual perceptual training appears to present a problem as to the degree of importance that it maintains. Authorities in the field are divided as to the ability of visual perception to predict academic achievement and to determine readiness. Presented in this paper is an overview of the research studies concerning the predicative value of the Marianne Frostig Test of Visual Perception in the area of reading, the ability of visual perceptual tasks necessary for readiness and the effects of a perceptual training program on reading achievement.
