PSR is an iPhone and iPad app designed to support the storage, calculation and interpretation of the results of visual and motor perceptual skills tests.
PSR allows to enter the information of the child to whom the tests will be applied: full name, birth date and gender. In addition, it is possible to enter comments or general observations about the child or the tests applied and the possible therapies.
After entering child information, examiner touches (selects) the row corresponding with the child to begin with tests results recording, PSR shows the tests that can be recorded according to the chronological age of the child. The examiner must apply the tests in their original format, register the answers in paper (and latter enter the answers in the app) or directly in PSR to obtain the results and performance of the child according to the values given by the author of each test.
Tests included in PSR are divided in four categories: primitive reflexes, visual spatial relation skills, visual analysis skills and visual integration skills.
Tests for evaluating primitive reflexes include: moro reflex, asymmetrical tonic neck reflex, symmetrical tonic neck reflex and tonic labyrinthine reflex. PSR allows the examiner to consult more information about the symptoms of every reflex in the tests.
Tests for evaluating spatial relation skills include: angels in the snow, chalkboard circles, Piaget test, Gardner reversals frequency test and primary mental abilities (PMA).
Tests for evaluating visual analysis skills include: test of visual perceptual skills (TVPS), visual organization test (VOT), Southern California sensory integration test (SCSIT), primary mental abilities (PMA), hand movements and Detroit Test of Learning Aptitude (DTLA).
Tests for evaluating visual integration skills include: foot balance, alternate foot jump, grooved pegboard, visual motor integration (VMI), divided form board test, Wold sentence copy test, auditory visual integration test (AVIT) and test of auditory perceptual skills (TAPS).
Once the tests answers were entered, PSR allows to see the individual results of each test or to generate a report that includes a table with global results of child's performance, which can be used for suggesting the corresponding visual therapies. The report can be sent as an email attachment, saved to the photos app or printed.
PSR includes help with specific information for each test, which can be consulted when selecting the corresponding option for the test.
