Abstract

The southern California Postrotary Nystagmus Test (SCNPT) was administered to 52 children who were asked to sketch human figure drawings (HFD) during assessment procedures designed to determine learning disability and perceptual motor dysfunction. Analysis of these data confirmed the hypothesis that children with hypo responsive nystagmus (PRN) durations. The suggestions that therapists should assess the vestibular characteristics of these children were supported by the results of this study; however, a definitive statement concerning PRN and HFD relationships much awaits additional research. Future investigations will need to ensure that the PRN-HRD associations are not mediated by one or more of the other variables found to be correlated with HFD performance.
