Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:

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 (to locate the important stimulus without getting confused by the background or surrounding images). This skill is key for good attention and concentration. 

In the “Word Tracking” worksheets, the student must focus on one word at a time within the busy field of all the other surrounding words as they scan the rows. The student's eyes must move from left to right along each row (not deviate up or down).

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 “Word Tracking” worksheets, the student must compare the features of any words that are similar to the word that they are looking for, in order to distinguish between them.
