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 “Line Designs” worksheets, the student must recognise which lines fit together to form the line design (see how the “pieces” form a “whole”).

Figure Ground 

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 “Line Designs” worksheets successfully, the student must track each of the lines in the design in turn, in order to identify them correctly (not get confused by the other overlapping lines).

Visual Discrimination 

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 “Line Designs” worksheets, the student must compare the features of any similar looking lines, 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 “Line Designs” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to trace the lines in a fluid and controlled manner. Tracing encourages the accurate placement and movement of a pencil on a sheet of paper.
