Assessment of Visuomotor and Visual Perception Skills in Children: A New Proposal Based on a Systematic Review

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Vision is a dominant sense in humans and its performance is a critical factor in children’s development and learning. For health sciences it is essential to identify the tools most used in the last decade to assess visuomotor and visual perception skills in children under 6 years of age. For that reason, systematic research was conducted according to the PRISMA criteria. The research was performed using B-on and Pubmed and were included articles published between 2011 until 2021. Included were 17 articles highlighting 2 different samples: children with typical development and children with abnormal development. The assessment protocol differs between researches. A large diversity of tests were observed, usually involving “paper and pencil” tasks. Surprisingly, the association of neuroimaging or electrophysiological techniques with traditional assessment is not common in clinical settings. This aspect will be fully analyzed and a proposal of change will be presented.
