Thirty-nine deaf adolescents from two state residential schools for the deaf were administered five visual perceptualtest measures (22 scores) and three language measures (10 scores) to determine whether or not the skills of visual perception were related to language acquisition. The data were converted to a correlation matrix and a factor analysis was performed. The correlation coefficients and the ten factors extracted from this matrix show the measures of visual perception and the language tasks used in this investigation to be positively related.
