Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Visual Analysis and Synthesis
Visual Analysis and Synthesis is the ability to recognise how certain parts make a whole.
In the “Connect Word Parts” worksheets, the student must identify which letter combinations fit together to form a word (see how the “pieces” form a “whole”).
Figure Ground perception is the ability to screen out any irrelevant visual material when presented with a lot of visual information at one time (to locate the important stimulus without getting confused by the background or surrounding images). This skill is key for good attention and concentration.
To complete the “Connect Word Parts” worksheets successfully, the student must focus on one “part” at a time within the busy field of all the surrounding “parts”.
Visual Motor Integration
Visual Motor Integration relates to the coordination of visual perceptual skills with body movement (the use of visual information to guide a motor task). For fine motor tasks, the eyes inform the arm and hand muscles where to go like "follow the leader”, so that motor output matches visual input.
In the “Connect Word Parts” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to draw a line connecting the “parts” in a fluid and controlled manner.
