Visual constructive and visual–motor skills in the deaf population were investigated by comparing performance of deaf native signers (n = 20) to that of hearing nonsigners (n = 20) on the Beery–Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual–Motor Integration, Rey–Osterrieth Complex Figure Test, Wechsler Memory Scale Visual Reproduction subtest, and Stanford–Binet Intelligence Scale Paper Folding and Cutting subtest. Deaf signers were found to perform similarly to hearing controls, suggesting that these tests are valid assessment instruments to use with deaf individuals.
