Beery VMI

  1. 1. The Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration(Beery VMI)<br />
  2. 2. Beery VMI<br />Is a developmental sequence of geometric forms to be copied with paper and pencil<br /><ul><li>It is designed to assess the extent to which individuals can integrate their visual and motor abilities (eye-hand coordination)
  3. 3. To help identify, through early screening, children who may need special assistance, to obtain needed services to them, to test the effectiveness of educational and other intervention and to advance research</li></li></ul><li>Beery VMI<br />Is virtually culture free<br /><ul><li>Uses geometric forms
  4. 4. Because children from different background often have widely varying degrees of experience with alphabets and numbers</li></li></ul><li>Beery VMI<br />From amoebas to humans and from infants to<br />adults, successful development is characterized by<br />increasing articulation of the parts with wholes.<br /><ul><li>An operating assumption that is based on Sherrington’s work in biology and the work of others in various fields, including the social sciences</li></li></ul><li>Beery VMI<br />From amoebas to humans and from infants to<br />adults, successful development is characterized by<br />increasing articulation of the parts with wholes.<br /><ul><li>Ideally, a test of visual-motor integration will help some children move forward toward more fully integrating all of their physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual parts with the whole of their selves and others</li></li></ul><li>From amoebas to humans, the nervous system seems to have progressed toward improved interaction among sensory and expressive modalities<br /><ul><li>In adult humans, sensory and expressive modalities are usually well connected and coordinated, or integrated</li></li></ul><li>Visual-motor may be the first sensory-response integration to develop<br /><ul><li>Kephart emphasized the importance of integration
  5. 5. He noted children have well developed visual and motor skills but be unable to integrate the two.
  6. 6. Vereeken reported that, to copy form with a pencil, a child must first be visually aware of the location and direction.
  7. 7. This awareness is made possible through voluntary eye movement</li></li></ul><li>Children can scribble vertical, horizontal, and circular lines before being able to imitate<br /><ul><li>Scribbling requires little or no eye-hand coordination
  8. 8. Imitation is probably achieved before direct copying of these same forms
  9. 9. In imitation, eye movements are rehearsed while the task is being demonstrated </li></li></ul><li>
  10. 10. Beery VMI<br />Is designed to measure a hyphen in the term visual-motor integration on the premise:<br />
