The literature has consistently supported some level of correlation between VMI scores and handwriting, lending some support to the continued use of the VMI as a tool to measure the component skills of visual—motor integration and to help determine which children could benefit from further assessment and treatment.

Spatial skills —The ability to locate objects in a three-dimensional world using sight or touch. The sixth edition of the Beery VMI remains strongly focused upon early childhood education.

Five teaching tools offer activities and exercises that help teachers respond to VMI results:.

Intervention and Professional Materials. Motor Coordination forms “”addtocartitemid”: Scorers participating in this study were all given the same sample test to score and needed to achieve at least these levels of reliability before continuing. The manual also presents teaching suggestions.

These results are consistent with previous research using the VMI as an outcome measure after handwriting and related interventions Howe et al. This therapist was blinded to student demographic information and condition experimental developmemtal.

Includes manual, 10 full forms, 10 short forms, 10 visual perception forms, and 10 motor coordination forms. The test can be individually or group administered in just 10 to 15 minutes. 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.

In addition, the Manual includes approximately age-specific norms, from birth through age 6. We thank the therapists and teachers who supported the implementation of the study in their schools.
