Visual Motor Assessment

Gerald Fuller, Ph.D.


The ViMo assesses visual-motor impairment with educational and clinical applications in just 5 to 10 minutes. It consists of six Gestalt designs that the respondent is asked to reproduce. Based on the degree of rotation and the number of separations and distortions, results indicate the type of visual-motor impairment and the likelihood of a learning or behavioral problems, emotional or personality disturbance, brain damage, or schizophrenia. With these results, you can determine the type of further testing required.

By controlling for age and IQ, the ViMo helps to ensure the most accurate results possible. It also provides a four-step diagnostic process to guide you when using the rotation, separation, and distortion scores to determine which diagnostic group is most likely related to various types of impairment. Its non-verbal format is ideal for use with respondents from different environmental and educational backgrounds.
