The study was planned to examine the effect of visual-praxis-based occupational therapy education program (VPOTEP), which will be applied to children diagnosed with Specific Learning Disorder (SLD), on motor and reading skills. Forty-two children who were diagnosed with SLD, met the inclusion criteria, and volunteered were included in the study. The study was conducted using a randomized controlled single-blind cross-over study design. In order to plan the VPOTEP to be created, the Motor Free Visual Perception Test-3 (MVPT-3) was applied before the training program. In addition, before the VPOTEP, the Reading Aloud and Reading Comprehension Test 2 (SOBAT-2) was evaluated to all participants to assess their reading skills, and the Bruninks-Oserestry Motor Proficiency Test 2 Brief Form (BOT2-BF) was evaluated to assess the motor skills of the children. Then the participants were randomly divided into 2 groups, A and B. According to the study design, VPOTEP was applied to group A, 2 sessions per week for 8 weeks, each session being 45 minutes. During this period, group B was accepted as the control group and no intervention was applied. At the end of 8 weeks, evaluation tests were applied to both groups for the second time. Then, group A was defined as the control group and group B as the intervention group, and VPOTEP was applied to group B, 2 sessions per week for 8 weeks, with 45 minutes each session. At the end of 8 weeks, evaluation tests were applied to both groups for the third time, and the results were recorded. When the BOT2-BF results were examined, it was found that VPOTEP was effective in the development of motor skills (except balance, manuel dexterity and strenght motor skills). In addition, when the SOBAT-2 results were examined, it was determined that VPOTEP was an effective program for improving reading speed, fluent reading, correct reading and reading comprehension (p<0.05). We think that it is important to carry out comprehensive studies such as GEEP at the point of solving the problems in the daily and academic lives of children with SLD.
