Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Form Constancy is the ability to recognise any given visual stimulus as the same despite changes in its presentation, such as, size, colour, texture, direction, orientation or context.
In the “Different Font Word Match” worksheets, the student must recognise the matching words despite changes in their form (change in font).
Visual Discrimination is the ability to identify differences and similarities between shapes, symbols, objects or patterns, by analysing their individual characteristics and distinctive features.
In the “Different Font Word Match” worksheets, the student must compare the features of any similar words, in order to distinguish between them.
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 “Different Font Word Match” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to draw a line connecting the matching words in a fluid and controlled manner.
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 “Different Font Word Match” worksheets successfully, the student must attend to one word at a time within the busy field of the surrounding words.
