The Beery™ VMI is an easy-to-use and cost-effective screening toolthat measures the extent to which individuals can integrate their visual and motor abilities. It screens for visual-motor deficits that can lead to learning, neuropsychological, and behaviour problems. The Beery™ VMI is available in both a Short Format as well as a Full Format, with the Short Format being used most often with children between the ages of 2 and 7 years. Both the Short and Full Format tests present drawings of geometric forms arranged in order of increasing difficulty that the individual is asked to copy. As a culture-free, non-verbal assessment, the Beery VMI is useful with individuals of diverse environmental, educational and linguistic backgrounds.
AREAS OF APPLICATION
The Beery™ VMI is suitable for respondents with diverse environmental, educational, and linguistic backgrounds. The test can be used to help:
- Identify individuals who may be encountering difficulties in visual-motor integration and to determine the most appropriate course of action.
- Help parents better understand their child's current level of development using age norm information.
- Used in the classroom as a screener to identify whether alternativeteaching solutionswould be meaningful.
- Test the effectiveness of educational and other interventions.
- Conduct research.
Since this assessment is hand scored, although information obtained from the assessment can be used to compile a report, no electronic report options currently exist.
