Abstract

This study examined the Benton Visual Retention Test (BVRT) with 130 children and adolescents with learning disabilities (LD) who were between the ages of 8 and 13 years of age. Results of factor analysis showed errors scores from the BVRT loaded on a visual processing/memory factor. The measure appears to be sensitive to developmental patterns which was supported by statistical analysis. Error and correct score patterns are also examined for different subgroups. The results of this study support the use of the BVRT with children and adolescents with LD.
