developmental test visual perception: adolescent and adult (dtvp-a)

The DTVP-A is a battery of six subtests which measure different, but interrelated visual-perceptual and visual-motor abilities. It distinguishes true visual-perceptual deficits from problems with complex eye-hand or perceptual-motor actions.

The DTVP-A is a battery of six subtests which measure different, but interrelated visual-perceptual and visual-motor abilities. It distinguishes true visual-perceptual deficits from problems with complex eye-hand or perceptual-motor actions.

The DTVP-A is especially useful in the evaluation of the neuropsychological integrity of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and stroke patients, where right-hemisphere function may be at issue. It also is useful in providing a differential diagnosis of dementia in elderly patients, providing a baseline for normal aging changes, against which the patient may be referenced.

The DTVP-A is the latest test based on the work of Marianne Frostig. It is an extension of the widely-used and well-respected DTVP-2, described above. Normed through age 75, the DTVP-A has enough easy items to accurately assess even individuals with severe TBI, and other neurologically-impaired individuals.

The six DTVP-A subtests are:

  1. Copying-drawing of a simple figure
  2. Figure-Ground-finding hidden figures
  3. Visual-Motor Search-connecting numbered circles, in numerical sequence
  4. Visual Closure-selection of an exact figure from a series of incomplete figures
  5. Visual-Motor Speed-comparison of four different geometric designs
  6. Form Constancy-Finding a stimulus figure in a series of figures

The reliability of various subtests and index scores indicates the DTVP-A is sensitive to improvement over the course of treatment. Additionally, subtests and indexes also suggest areas of emphasis in cognitive and fine motor rehabilitation. The DTVP-A provides standard scores for each subtest, constituting a composite, which is converted into the following indexes:

  • General Visual-Perception
  • Motor-Reduced Visual Perception
  • Visual-Motor
  • Integration

The DTVP-A Kit includes the Manual, Picture Book and 25 each of the Forms and Response Booklets.
