The article discusses findings of a follow-up study of the Frostig Visual-Perception training program. An overview of the 1965-1966 evaluation of the training program is provided. The study aims to replicate the former research and to follow up the participants to determine the predictive validity of the Frostig tests and the cumulative effects of the program upon future reading achievement. The design and methods of the study is described. The analysis of variance showed significant differences between treatments and among grades. Also, there is a moderate degree of correlation between Frostig scores and the Metropolitan Reading Readiness scores.
