How we can help your kids

Difficulties in visual perception affect our ability to adapt to the world around us. This in turn affects our abilities in reading, writing, maths and spelling. Plus they can impact on the activities of daily living.

 

Step 1

Standardised test are used:
Beery Test of Visual Motor Integration – (VMI-4)
Motor Free Visual Perceptual Test (revised MVPT-R)
Developmental Test of Visual Perception (DTVP-2):
Test of Visual Analysis Skills – (TVAS)
Evaluation Tool of Children’s Handwriting (ETCH-Manuscript).
Monroe Visual Memory Test:
