Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
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 “Join the Words” worksheets successfully, the student must find each word in the sequence in turn within the busy field of all the surrounding words.
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 “Join the Words” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand in the correct direction to draw a line connecting each word in the sequence in turn.
