Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
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 the “Word Sequence Tracking” worksheets, the student must focus on one word at a time within the busy field of all the other surrounding words as they scan the rows. The student's eyes must move from left to right along each row (not deviate 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 “Word Sequence Tracking” worksheets, the student must analyze how the two words are positioned in relation to each other, in order to recognize the same sequence as they scan the rows. For example, “and” comes after “the” or “the” is on the left of “and”.
