Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Spatial Relationships perception is the ability to identify the position of two or more visual stimuli in relation to oneself and/or in relation to each other.
In the “Dot to Dot Designs 5x5” worksheets, the student must analyze the position of the dots, and identify how the lines relate to each other. They must then pinpoint the corresponding dots that need to be joined in the empty box.
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 “Dot to Dot Designs 5x5” worksheets successfully, the student must focus on one dot/line at a time within the busy field of all the other dots/lines on the page.
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 “Dot to Dot Designs 5x5” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide the movement of their hand in order to copy the lines in a fluid and controlled manner.
