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 “Spacing Words on Lines” worksheets, the student must analyze how the words are positioned in relation to each other (the amount of space between the words on each line), and in relation to the line (written on the line).
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 “Spacing Words on Lines” worksheets successfully, the student must focus on a few words at a time within the busy field of all the other words/lines on the page. They must also be able to find the place where they last left off after copying a portion of the words to the bottom box.
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 “Spacing Words on Line” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to copy the words in a fluid and controlled manner.
