Assessing visual-motor abilities fascinates clinicians and researchers. The Bender Visual Motor Gestalt Test is one of the most widely used instruments (Prout, 1983; Tolar & Brannigan, 1980; Vukovich, 1983). Orton (1925) linked reading disorders to visual processing deficits, but process testing fell out of favor when the efficacy of process training in remediation was not demon- strated (Hammill, Goodman, & Wiederholt, 1974). With several recent studies associating visual-spatial and sensory motor deficits to some types of learning disabilities (Filipek, Kennedy, & Caviness, 1992; Roucke & DelDotto, 1994), interest is again rising. The Wide Range Assessment of Visual Motor Abilities (WRAVMA) assesses three areas of visual-motor functioning: visual-motor abil- ity, visual-spatial ability, and fine motor ability. CONTENT The WRAVMA is an individually administered test for children and adoles- cents aged 3 years 0 months to 17 years 11 months.
