Key Features

The Beery VMI is among the few psychological assessments that provide standard scores as low as 2 years.
The Beery VMI 6th Edition Manual provides approximately 600 age-specific norms from birth through age 6. These consist of basic gross motor, fine motor, visual, and visual-fine motor developmental "stepping stones" that have been identified by research criteria. Many examiners find the age norm information to be useful in helping parents better understand their child's current level of development. The manual also presents teaching suggestions.
As culture-free, non-verbal assessment, the Beery VMI is useful with individuals of diverse environmental, educational, and linguistic backgrounds.
The Short and Full Format tests can be administered individually or to groups. (Individual administration is recommended for the supplemental tests.)

How to Use This TestThe Beery VMI can be used by psychologists, learning disability specialists, school counselors, teachers, and other professionals to help:

Identify individuals who may be encountering difficulties in visual-motor integration
Make appropriate referrals for needed services
Test the effectiveness of remedial and other interventions
Conduct research

Norms The Beery VMI was standardized on a national sample of 1,737 individuals age 2 to 18 years (2010) and 1,021 adults ages 19-100 (2006), and has proven reliability and validity. Updates of medical neuropsychological, international, and other studies are also reported.

Adult Norms: The U.S. population is aging, and thus has created the need for better identification of possible neurological problems.

Studies have indicated that visuoconstructional deficits are an early indicator of dementia, such as Alzheimer's disease. Considered by clinicians and researchers as more robust and better statistically, the Beery VMI test contains supplemental tests of visual perception and motor coordination that provide much needed information to help form a confident diagnosis. Unlike other tests of visual motor integration that can be too intimidating, inconsistent, or insensitive to many older adults, the Beery VMI has been found to be both comfortable and effective for this population.

Reporting Results The test administrator scores the assessments using the Beery VMI 6th Edition Manual. Results are reported as standard score, percentile, or other equivalents.

COMPLETE BERRY VMI-6 STARTER KIT INCLUDES: Manual, 10 Full Forms, 10 Short Forms, 10 Visual Perception Forms, and 10 Motor Coordination Forms. (2010)
