Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of selection techniques on visual sequential recall. Specifically, this study investigated whether there are visual sequential recall differences between direct selection and scanning in task performance in normally developing 4-year-old children. Results suggested that there were no significant differences between direct selection and scanning for visual sequential recall. However, subjects correctly recalled significantly fewer symbols in a specific sequence represented by Blissymbols than by Picsyms. In addition they recalled significantly fewer three-symbol sequences than two-symbol sequences regardless of the type of symbol set.
