Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:

Form Constancy 

Form Constancy is the ability to recognise any given visual stimulus as the same despite changes in its presentation, such as, size, colour, texture, direction, orientation or context.

In the “Symbol Shapes” worksheets, the student must recognise the shape that is specified in the question, despite the fact that the shape varies in size, position and/or angle from one symbol to another.

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 “Symbol Shapes” worksheets successfully, the student must attend to one symbol at a time within the busy field of all the surrounding symbols, in order to search for the shape that is specified in the question.
