CUNHA, Claudia Araújo da; BRITO, Marcionila Rodrigues daSilva  e  SILVA, Scheila Maria Ferreira e. Literacy, operativeness and level of maturity in primary school children. PsicoUSF [online]. 2003, vol.8, n.2, pp. 155-162. ISSN 1413-8271.

This paper aims to discuss the relationships established among the learning difficulties in writing and the intellectual and maturity level of the children attending at the second grade of primary school. The Escala de Avaliação na Aprendizagem da Escrita (ADAPE) as well as the length conservation task and the CAT-H were applied to 60 children, of both sexes, from two public schools. The Spearman’s rank correlation coefficients suggest that there were not any significant correlation among the data of the three tests and the subjects’ ages. It was possible, however, to find a significant difference when comparing the results of the ADAPE to the male and female sexes, the female subjects showing a better performance.
