The "Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration", the "Wide Range Achievement Test", and the "Student's Perception of Ability Scale" were administered to 70 learning disabled and 73 normally achieving grade-3 children who had been stratified on full-scale WISC-R IQ scores. WISC-R Verbal-Performance difference, "Wide Range Achievement Test", and "Student's Perception of Ability" scores all differentiated between the two groups, but significant differences were not obtained for visual-motor integration skills. The results are discussed in terms of conducting research with samples matched on IQ and the importance of remedial procedures focusing on verbal, cognitive, and affective development.
