SANTOS, Acácia Aparecida Angeli dos  e  JORGE, Lília Maíse de. Bender Test with dyslexics: Comparison of two systems of punctuation. PsicoUSF [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.1, pp. 13-21. ISSN 1413-8271.

The present study aimed to evaluate maturity and dysfunctional aspects referred to visualmotor perception of dyslexics using for this, the Bender Test analyzed under two correction systems, being the gradual scoring system (B-SPG) and Lacks system. Twenty dyslexics have taken part in the research with ages from 9 to 16 years (average=12), being 16 males and 4 females. The data showed the average of mistakes committed by the dyslexics was above the expected for children from nine to ten years who compose the B-SPG normative sample. According to the Lacks scoring system the factors more affected in the sample of dyslexics were referred to changes on the gestalt form and distortions, factors which are equivalent to the form distortions on the B-SPG. The correlation index between these two systems was significant (r = 0.76).
