The purpose of this study was to investigate relationships between performance by children on computerized rehabilitation tasks, age and standardized assessment instruments. It was hypothesized that children's performance would differ by age on standardized assessment instruments and computer tasks developed for rehabilitation of attention, visual/perceptual and visual memory skills.;Two hundred five children from three schools in Chesapeake, Virginia, completed the Benton Visual Retention Test - Administration C, the Trail Making Test (B), and six computer tasks. Significant correlation was found between age, and both assessment instruments as well as five of the computer tasks. Standardized instruments correlated with one of each type of computer task for attention, visual/perceptual and visual memory skills. Additionally, correlation was found between one computer program and the Trail Making Test for visual/perceptual skills.;Further study is needed to develop standardization of these computer tasks for use rehabilitation of attention, visual/perceptual and memory skills dysfunction.
