Abstract

Explored the relationship between vestibular function as measured by duration of postrotary nystagmus and human figure drawing ability in 40 children labeled as learning disabled. Regression analysis revealed that the variable of chronological age shared the most variance with human figure drawing scores. Postrotary nystagmus durations also shared a significant amount of variance with human figure drawing scores, while the variables of IQ and sex were nonsignificant. The results provide additional support for the assertion that some learning-disabled children evidence deficits in vestibular processing ability and that these deficits may affect performance on cognitive-perceptual tasks.
