This is a packet to give to parents, teachers, staff, and other related services about visual perceptual skills!
This packet focuses on handouts for VISUAL PERCEPTUAL SKILLS. The handouts explain each area, how this area is relevant to school and common accommodations. There is one page for each area (5 pages total)
This can be given to teachers, parents, paraprofessionals, related service and other school staff members to help explain each area.
The visual perception areas covered include form constancy (the ability to recognize objects as they change in size, shape or orientation), figure ground (the ability to find an object from irrelevant background information), visual discrimination (the ability to identify shapes /area based on their differences such as color, shape, size, pattern form or position), visual spatial relations (the ability to understand the relationship of objects for their position in space) and visual closure (the ability to identify shape / word / letter when part of it is missing).

I am a school occupational therapist who has a doctorate in occupational therapy. I work closely with special education and general education staff adapting material. This is where I get my inspiration for this material. I have used my materials with a variety of children with different disabilities including learning disabilities, dyslexia, autism, sensory processing disorder, ADD, ADHD, visual impairments, deaf/hard of hearing, cerebral palsy, down syndrome and more.
