 This study aims to define whether age creates any differences in the visual-motor integration skills of 60- 72 months old children at low and high socio- economic status. The study was conducted on a total of 148 children consisting of 78 children representing low socio- economic status and 70 children representing high socio- economic status in the city center of Edirne. The Beery- Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual Motor Integration (VMI- 5th) which was developed by Beery- Buktenica (2004) and of which validity and reliability studies were made by Ercan and Aral (2011) after being translated into Turkish was used. It’s reported that both the age and the status of being at low and high socio-economic status create a meaningful difference in the visual-motor integration, visual perception and motor integration of 60-72 months old children at low and high socio-economic status (p<.05) while visual-motor integration mean score is higher for 66- 72 months old children at high socio- economic status.
