Babies who experience low blood sugar at or near birth are at least two to three times more likely to face problems with planning, memory, attention, problem-solving and visual-motor coordination
by the age of 4.
The interplay between perceptual and motor aspects, especially visual-motor coordination
and learning disabilities, is well discussed in the literature (Carvalho & Magalhaes, 2004; Souza & Capellini, 2011; Silva et al.
Very few of the tools included the paper-and-pencil tasks that are important to observe when assessing handwriting skills as well as fine motor and visual-motor coordination
skills, which have been determined to be primary components of handwriting (Cornhill & Case-Smith, 1996; Daly et al.
Based on the most modern classifications of coordination motor skills (the analysis of the problem is contained in , the scope of the examinations included: kinaesthetic differentiation of movements (temporal and spatial parameters), spatial and dynamic kinaesthetic differentiation, frequency of movements, mean time of simple reaction (to visual and auditory stimuli), mean time of selective reaction, spatial orientation, visual-motor coordination
, rhythmization and speed, precision and accuracy of movements.
They then repeated the task, but with their hands obscured and an image of what they were drawing on a screen in front of them - a task that involves more advanced visual-motor coordination
Visual perceptual-motor variables that may play an important role in the motor skill performance of children with VI are visual spatial perception, motion perception, and visual-motor coordination
(Sleeuwenhoek et al.
Finally, ametropia may make near tasks uncomfortable, interfering with development of visual-motor coordination
skills in these preschoolers.
Such a rhythm is most important since it corresponds to a fast and accurate performance of the task; (b) hand-eye coordination (test; match juggling); in this test the performance is based on visual-motor coordination
Twelve of 13 neuropsychological tests demonstrated no differences between treatment groups; the Grooved Peg Board Test of manual dexterity and fine visual-motor coordination
demonstrated a slight improvement for the LT4 alone treatment group.
Diagnosing lead poisoning in alders can prove difficult, because the symptoms resemble what we think of as the inevitable curses of old age: poor sleep patterns, slowed reaction times, irritability, and impaired visual-motor coordination
, according to the 2001 EPA report.
She also conducts seminars for the community on a variety of topics, is an active member of the Florida Psychological Association, and is currently developing a series of children's enrichment programs using music, dance/body movement and art to help children develop and/or improve in areas like language and social skills, as well as visual-motor coordination
Feder and Majnemer (2007) described handwriting as a "complex perceptual-motor skill encompassing a blend of visual-motor coordination
abilities, motor planning, cognitive, and perceptual skills, as well as tactile and kinesthetic sensitivities" (p.
