Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Visual Closure is the ability to recognize any given visual stimulus from an incomplete presentation (part of the stimulus is missing). The ability to identify what we are seeing without having to analyze every detail enables us to process information in our environment quickly.
In the “Word Behind Clouds” worksheets, the student must mentally fill in the parts of each word that is concealed by the clouds, in order to identify the whole word.
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 “Word Behind Clouds” worksheets successfully, the student must focus on one word at a time within the busy field of the surrounding words/cloud images.
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 “Word Behind Clouds” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to copy the words in a fluid and controlled manner.
