Visual perception; Motor ability in children; Poor children--Education


The writer set out to investigate the literature which discussed the visual-perceptual-motor skills fundamental to reading readiness. More specifically, the writer wished to investigate the literature which pertained to the inner-city child and to the deficiencies he has in this area. The writer is interested in ascertaining whether all incoming primary children would benefit from a perceptual-motor program and if such a program would be especially feasible in an inner-city school.
