Abstract

Abstract Eight children with visuomotor disability were studied individually over a period of 3 years. Psychological tests revealed that 2 subjects showed mainly motor impairment, 1 had mainly perceptual disability and the remaining 5 suffered mixed motor and perceptual handicaps. Six children had hazardous birth histories and all 8 showed retarded motor development. Gross neurological examination revealed signs of minor dysfunction in 7 subjects. All the children had histories of educational difficulties varying from minor to extreme discrepancies between school achievement and intellectual potential. The need for early detection of this disorder and for remedial training was emphasised.
