Test of Visual-Perceptual Skills (non-motor): 3rd Edition

Nancy A. Martin


The TVPS-3 is an easy to use instrument that helps you determine a child's visual perceptual strengths and weaknesses. It was designed for use by occupational therapists, psychologists, education diagnosticians, developmental optometrists, learning specialists, and other assessment professionals. The new third edition covers all of the ages that were previously served by two earlier versions: TVPS-R and TVPS(UL)-R.

How to Use the Assessment
The TVPS-3 uses black and white designs as stimuli for all of the perceptual tasks arranged in a developmental progression. Responses are made vocally or by pointing, which is ideal for children who may have motor, speech, hearing, neurological, or cognitive impairments. There are 16 plates for each perceptual area; each is normed separately so that you can reliably differentiate the various visual perceptual processes.
