The poster presents three major themes from contemporary research that can inform the practice of school psychologists: 1) Visual-motor assessment is significant in a range of disorders beyond learning disability. 2) Cultural differences need to be considered in the assessment and interpretation of visual-motor functioning. 3) Current pencil-and-paper methods for visual-motor assessment are useful but limited, with substantial redundancy among items. Technology may lead to measures that are more comprehensive and precise.
