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 Pointing Same Way (1)” worksheets, the student must analyze the position (identify the orientation) of each arrow on the page in relation to their own body. For example, pointing left, right, up or down.
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 order to successfully scan for the answers in the “Arrow Pointing Same Way (1)” worksheets, the student must focus on one arrow at a time within the busy field of all the other surrounding arrows on the page.
Form Constancy is the ability to recognize any given visual stimulus as the same despite changes in its presentation, such as, size, texture, direction, orientation, color or context.
In the “Arrow Pointing Same Way (1)” worksheets, the student must identify 5 arrows that are facing the same direction as that which is specified in the instruction, despite changes in their form.
