Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Position in Space
Position in Space perception is the ability to identify the position of any given visual stimulus in relation to oneself.
In the “Arrow Blocks” worksheets, the student must analyze the position of each arrow in relation to their own body. In so doing, they will be able to identify which arrows are pointing left, right, up or down.
Spatial Relationships perception is the ability to identify the position of two or more visual stimuli in relation to oneself and/or in relation to each other.
In the “Arrow Blocks” worksheets, the student must identify the position of all the blocks that contain an arrow that is pointing in the direction described in the instruction, by analysing how the blocks relate to each other. They must then identify the correct corresponding blocks in which to make a cross, in the box at the bottom of the page.
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 “Arrow Blocks” worksheets successfully, the student must focus on one arrow at a time within the busy field of all the other arrows on the page.
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 “Arrow Blocks” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide the movement of their hand in a fluid and controlled manner, in order to make a cross (X) in the correct corresponding blocks in the box at the bottom of the page.
