VENDEMIATTO, Bianca Carolina; SANTOS, Acácia Aparecida Angeli dos  and  SUEHIRO, Adriana Cristina Boulhoça. Intelligence and visual-motor maturity: a study with adolescents in social risk situation. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.3, pp. 439-447. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study meant to evaluate the intelligence and visual-motor skills maturity in a group of teenagers at social risk. 41 subjects participated, both sexes, between 13 and 17 years (M = 14.9, SD = 0.97) from the 5th to 8th grade of elementary school, deriving of Institution of Social Workmanship of the State of São Paulo. The instruments used were the R1-Form B and Bender-SPG tests. The average score was 7.12 in Bender errors, which performance is below of the normative 10 years old population. Only in the R1-Form B participants scored 23.68 points, average close to normative population, also originated from socio-cultural environment and also disadvantaged. The average score of the R1-B Form not presented the expected and significant negative correlation with the average of errors of the B-GSP. This suggests the need for further studies in order to elucidate this result, apparently inconsistent with the literature.
