Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Visual Sequential Memory
Visual Sequential Memory is the ability to remember and recall a sequence of visual images such as letters, shapes, numbers, symbols or objects in the correct order.
In the “Missing Word Sequential Memory” worksheets, the student must form a mental image of the words in the sequence on the first page, in order to recall the words in the same order when they are no longer visible. In so doing, the student will be able to identify which word is missing in the sequence on the second page.
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 Word Sequential Memory” worksheets successfully, the student must attend to one word/box at a time within the busy field of all the other surrounding words/boxes.
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 Word Sequential Memory” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to copy the missing word in a fluid and controlled manner.
