Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Visual Memory is the ability to remember what is seen for immediate recall. It involves forming a mental image or picture of the characteristics of any given visual stimulus once the stimulus has been removed.
In the “Memory Dot Designs 3x3” worksheets, the student must form a mental image of each design (recall the position of the lines), in order to correctly reproduce the design once it is no longer visible.
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 “Memory Dot Designs 3x3” worksheets, the student must analyze the position of the dots, and identify how the lines relate to each other. They must then pinpoint the corresponding dots that need to be joined.
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 “Memory Dot Designs 3x3” worksheets successfully, the student must focus on one dot/line at a time within the busy field of all the other dots/lines 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 “Memory Dot Designs 3x3” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide the movement of their hand in order to copy the lines in a fluid and controlled manner.
