Use of the charts with a 6-year-old child is described in the chapter "Visual-perceptual-motor dysfunction: Effects on eye-hand coordination and skill development". In Functional Visual Behavior in Children: An Occupational Therapy Guide to Evaluation and Treatment Options (2nd ed.), available from The American Occupational Therapy Association (800) 729-2682 or www.aota.org
The same case study is used in the DVD video series Evaluation and Treatment of the Child with Visual-Perceptual-Motor Problems: A 3-Part Series (1997), 125 minutes (V23.0P: $250).
V23.1: Part 1 (25 minutes) demonstrates procedures for observational evaluation.
V23.2: Part 2 (75 minutes) follows the 4-month home treatment program.
V23.3: Part 3 (25 minutes) shows results through reevaluation one year later.
