ABSTRACT
The article cites several studies which focused on learning disabilities. One study focused on the way in which the child may make contact with and conceptualize about his environment through "haptics" that is, through the active manual exploration of objects in his environment. The study's authors studied haptic object recognition in the child as an end product of haptic perceptual activity. The primary objective was an empirically based description of the mediation system underlying haptic object recognition. Additionally, the child's haptic coding system and his existing object concept structure were delineated. Another study concerned subjects who were required to keep track mentally of the number of occurrences of each of several different symbols presented sequentially. When subjects are so required to tally mentally the number of occurrences of each of several different symbols or letters presented repetitively in a sequence, the majority of subjects will mentally picture a set of windows--one corresponding to each category of symbols presented.
