Visual perception and drawing ability in clumsy and normal children (pages 1-9)

A previous study (Lord & Hulme, 1987) demonstrated wide‐ranging deficits in visuo‐spatial perception in clumsy children. The present study sought to examine the relationship between visual perception and drawing ability in groups of clumsy and normal children, and also to compare drawing performance in the two groups under conditions in which the availability of vision was varied. It was found that the clumsy children performed more poorly than the controls on the visual discrimination, and several measures of drawing performance, and that perceptual performance was related to drawing ability in the clumsy children, but not in the control children.
