LITERATIVE REVIEW      The purpose of my literature review is to examine the various therapeutic intervention strategies being administered to adult and children who have perceptual, spacial, gross and fine motor proficient disabilities. Furthermore what approaches appear to be working in their rehabilitation process. adults with perceptual dysfunction secondary to brain injury often includes Occupational therapy has been one of the main therapeutic strategies used for perceptual retraining according to (Holzer, Strassny, Senner-Hurley & Lefkowitz, 1982; Hopkins & Smith, 1983; Prigitano, 1986; Siev Freishtat, & Zoltan, 1986; Trombly, 1983, Van Deusen, 1988; Wahlstrom. 1983).

Neurodevelopmental treatment deals with proprioceptive and Kinesthetic perceptious as they relate to functional movement patterns. These approaches provide training in the perceptual processing components of functional behavior with perceptual drills or specific sequences of sensorimotor exercises. These are the common assumptions underlying the adaptive and remedial treatments used currently. Occupational therapy’s perceptual retraining literature includes description of both adaptive and remedial approaches. (Siev et al. 1986), for example four perceptual treatment Approaches for adults: A) Sensory integration B) Transfer of training C) Functional training and D) Neurodevelopmental. Three of these approaches – sensory integration, transfer of training, and neurodevelopmental can be classified as remedial because their underlying assumptions match the remedial assumption outlined previously such as the retraining sequences.      In the sensory integration and neurodevelopmental approaches, the therapist provides controlled vestibular, tactile, proprioceptive, and kenesthetic stimulation to promote normal central nervous system processing of sensory information. Theoretically, because perceptual motor behaviors are performed in response to the nervous systems interpretation of sensory inputs, normal sensory processing should help the client to make more
