This statement reviews patterning as a treatment for children with neurologic impairments. This treatment is based on an outmoded and oversimplified theory of brain development. Current information does not support the claims of proponents that this treatment is efficacious, and its use continues to be unwarranted.

Children with severe brain injuries. Neurological organization in terms of mobility.
TLDR
A developmental mobility scale was devised which described 13 levels of normal development as the criteria of progress during a two-year study of 76 children, which are significantly better than those achieved by the authors with previous methods. Expand
On "an experimental evaluation of sensorimotor patterning": a critique.
TLDR
A critique was presented of a study by Neman, Roos, McCann, Menolascino, and Heal (1975) in which a sensorimotor training method of treatment for retarded children was evaluated, and the problems raised by the premature release of the findings to the press were discussed. Expand
Test of the Doman-Delacato rationale with retarded readers.
TLDR
The results failed to confirm the validity of the Doman-Delacato rationale, suggesting that verifiable, empirical evidence from carefully controlled studies is needed if the rationale is to be taken seriously by the scientific community. Expand
Evaluation of a patterning treatment for retarded children.
TLDR
It was concluded that the sensorimotor patterning treatment investigated in this study cannot be recommended for seriously retarded children. Expand
