Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:

Spatial Relationships

Spatial Relationships perception is the ability to interpret the position of two or more visual stimuli in relation to oneself and/or in relation to each other. 

In the “Grid Word Positions” worksheets, the student must analyse how the blocks are positioned in relation to each other. These worksheets will build an understanding of location words (words that analyse position), such as, “on top of”, “below”, “to the left” and “to the right”. 

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. 

To complete the “Grid Word Positions” worksheets successfully, the student must find the word that is highlighted in the question in amongst all the other words (attend to that particular word while filtering out the visual distraction of the surrounding words).

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 “Grid Word Positions” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to copy the words in a fluid and controlled manner.
