VMI Developmental Teaching Activities More than activities for teachers to use with children from birth through age 6.

Developmental Teaching Activities This booklet includes more than activities for teachers and parents to use with children from birth to age 6.

The exercises use numeral and letter shapes so that the motor, visual, and visual-motor skills children learn with geometric shape exercises can be successfully transferred to numeral and letter shapes thry will use in school. Children who perform well on VMI testing may still have visual perception or motor coordination deficits. Test of Handwriting Skills—Revised.

The child and adult forms have been combined, making it more convenient if you work with clients of different ages.

Studies have indicated that visuoconstructional deficits are an early indicator of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s disease. Although it includes both manuscript and cursive booklets, only manuscript writing was assessed for our purposes.

A 2-day workshop designed to provide clinical training. Numerous studies examining relationships between the VMI and handwriting have demonstrated moderate correlations. Occupational and Physical Therapy.
