Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
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 Path” worksheets successfully, the student must focus on the line and follow it with their eyes. They must not become confused at points where the line intersects itself. The student must also be able to pinpoint the last letter that they wrote down, and continue following the line from that point.
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 Path” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand in order to copy the letters in a fluid and controlled manner.
