Visual perception in children; Reading comprehension; First grade (Education)


The major purpose of this study was to compare the patterns of visual perceptual development between boys and girls entering first grade by assessing areas in which differences were evidenced. Specifically, the following questions were considered: 1. Does a difference in the stage of perceptual development exist between the sexes? 2. Which of the distinct visual functions evaluated by the Frostig Developmental Test of Visual Perception differ from each other? 3. Can the results of this study be effectively reflected in planning differentiated reading readiness programs?
