Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:

Visual Memory

Visual Memory is the ability to remember what is seen for immediate recall. It involves forming a mental image or picture of the characteristics of any given shape, symbol, object or pattern once the stimulus has been removed.

In the “Missing Object Memory” worksheets, the student must form a mental image of all the details of each picture on the first page, in order to recall them correctly and identify what is missing in the corresponding picture on the second page.

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 (not confusing the background or any surrounding images with the important stimulus). This skill is key for good attention and concentration.

In order to complete the “Missing Object Memory” Worksheets successfully, the student must attend to all the details of each picture on the first page. They must then be able to pinpoint the same details on the second page. In so doing, they will be able to identify what is missing.

Visual Discrimination 

Visual Discrimination is the ability to identify differences and similarities between two or more visual stimuli by analysing their individual characteristics and distinctive features.

In the Missing Object Memory” worksheets, the student must compare the features of the two pictures, in order to identify what is missing/different 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 “Missing Object Memory” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to write the name of the missing object in a fluid and controlled manner.
