Motor-Reduced Visual Perception and Visual‐Motor Integration of Chinese-Speaking Children With Dyslexia
Visual perception appears to play an important role in Chinese reading development, and may be a factor limiting successful logographic reading acquisition for Chinese-speaking children with dyslexia. The aim of this study was to comprehensively profile visual perception, inclusive of motor-reduced visual perception (MRVP) and visual-motor integration (VMI), of Chinese-speaking children with a diagnosis of dyslexia residing in Hong Kong. Seventeen Chinese-speaking children with dyslexia participated in the study by completing the eight subtests from the Developmental Test of Visual Perception 2nd Edition (DTVP-2). These results suggest that Chinese-speaking and English-speaking children may require different levels of MRVP and VMI to achieve reading success in their respective written languages, and that strong visual perception may play a critical role in Chinese reading development.
