|Title:||Relationship between Cognitive Performance and Visual Motor Integration in Preschool Children in A Community: A Pilot Study|
|Abstract:||The purpose of this pilot study was to explore cognitive performance and visual motor integration, and investigate the relationship between them in preschool children in a community. Forty-nine participants were selected by stratified random sampling from a local community school and community child development center in Thailand. The instruments used were the Miller Assessment for Preschoolers (MAP) and the Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration (Beery VMI). Results showed that most of the preschool children (59.18%) had cognitive performance at the average level, and the percentage of such children increased when they reached the higher education level. Most of the children (79.60%) had an average VMI score of above the average level, which also increased when they reached the higher education level. In addition, the relationship between cognitive performance and VMI indicated a statistically significant relationship between verbal cognitive performance and VMI in the group of Kindergarten 1 (KG-1) participants (r = .417, p < .05).|
