dc.description.abstract Early years pre-logical students with literacy development difficulties, may have failed to develop access to, or control of a spatial orientation device, the virtual gyrostatic mechanism (VGM), a phenomenological device which may operate within holographic memory. Within the construct of the neural hologram are properties which may account for the existence of a VGM. This study examines the effects of haptic rehearsal strategies on the manipulation of holographic forms of memory storage and retrieval. This instructional strategy is intended to help students develop the ability to ameliorate orientation incongruencies, such as the reversal and inversion of letters and numerals, for the purpose of improving literacy skills. It is hypothesized that self-correcting tendancies, for letters and numerals may develop when students gain control of the VGM, and that access to and control of the VGM may occur by using haptic rehearsal strategies with three-dimensional objects. The purpose of the study is to see if students can be assisted to develop self-correcting tendencies for letter, numeral and shape errors by looking at photographs showing the front, back, top, bottom and side views of objects, identifying the views, and matching the views with concrete stimuli.
