NORONHA, Ana Paula P.; SANTOS, Acácia Aparecida A. dos  e  RUEDA, Fabián Javier M.. Perceptual-motor ability assessment in people with atypical development. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2021, vol.23, n.2, pp. 01-16. ISSN 1516-3687.

The assessment of perceptual-motor maturity has been investigated, and evidence indicates its relevance in the prediction of academic performance, which justifies the relevance of its investigation. This study investigated the psychometric qualities of a screening version of the Bender-Gradual Scoring System (B-SPG in Portuguese) in 273 individuals aged between six and 24 (M = 13.27, SD = 3.63), 166 (60, 8%) males, who were diagnosed with intellectual disabilities. The results of the exploratory factor analysis and regression analysis were satisfactory and demonstrated that it is possible to use only three figures to carry out the evaluation, which facilitates the psychologist's work. The accuracy of the instrument was also estimated, and the results showed adequate indexes. It is concluded that the screening version of the B-SPG proves to be an adequate measure for children with atypical development. However, other studies should be performed.
