The Bender Visual Motor Gestalt Test 2nd ed. (Bender-Gestalt II) is a brief test of visual-motor integration that can provide interpretive information about an individual's development and psychological functioning.
Appropriate for ages 4 to 85+ years, Bender-Gestalt II is designed for use with both children and adults and is useful in the identification of learning difficulties including poor perceptual discrimination ability, poor fine motor skills, visual-motor integration problems, attentional and impulsivity problems and memory storage and retrieval problems.
Administration of the Bender-Gestalt II involves two phases: the Copy phase and the Recall phase. In the Copy phase, the examinee is asked to copy each of the designs on a blank sheet of paper. In the Recall phase, the examinee is asked to redraw the designs from memory.
Examiners record examinee behaviour on the Bender-Gestalt II Observation Form. The Observation Form contains areas for recording times and different types of test-taking behaviour.
