There is a developmental age at which a child should be able to copy each of the shapes. Discrepancy between a child’s ability to produce an age-appropriate drawing and chronological age provides one indication of immaturity in visual-perceptual motor skills. (a) Visual perception Visual perception describes the brain’s ability to interpret and make sense of visual images seen with the eyes, enabling the brain to interpret correctly what is seen. This involves much more than simply adequate eyesight and is the product of multi-sensory and motor experience combined with vision and other information derived from other sensory systems together with operations in space.
Is he/she able to copy the diagonal line from left (top) to right (bottom) and from right (top) to left (bottom)? (from 51/2þ years). 4 Scoring (Lines) The scoring system is not applied to the drawing of vertical, horizontal or diagonal lines. The test is simply used for observation purposes. Record any of the above observations on the observation sheet. 1 ADDITIONAL MEASURES Draw a Person Test Children’s drawings provide a measure of developmental progress and delay. In 1921 Burt(20) stated that developmental progress and evidence of delay could be observed in children’s drawings and, in 1926, Goodenough(21) published ﬁndings using the ‘Draw a Man Test’, 37 DEVELOPMENTAL SCREENING TESTS FOR USE WITH CHILDREN AGED 4–7 YEARS which showed that children’s drawings are linked to intelligence.
4. The child was unable to carry out the task. 1 ASYMMETRICAL TONIC NECK REFLEX (ATNR) There are a variety of tests available to test for the continued presence of the ATNR. In young babies, the reﬂex is assessed in the supine position (lying on the back) with the tester gently rotating the head to each side and observing whether there is extension in the limbs on the side to which the head is turned and ﬂexion in the limbs on the occipital (back of the head) side. 29 DEVELOPMENTAL SCREENING TESTS FOR USE WITH CHILDREN AGED 4–7 YEARS The supine test is suitable for use with very young children or individuals with physical handicap.
