Visual Perceptual Skills Addressed:
Visual Discrimination is the ability to identify differences and similarities between two or more visual stimuli by analyzing their individual characteristics and distinctive features.
In the “Word Shapes” worksheets, the student must compare the features of any similar looking shapes, for example, circle/oval or square/rectangle, in order to distinguish between them.
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 search for the shapes that are specified in the question in the “Word Shapes” worksheets, the student must pinpoint these shapes within the busy field of all the other surrounding shapes.
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 “Word Shapes” worksheets, the student must analyze how the shapes are positioned in relation to their own body. For example, the triangle is pointing right; the rectangle is lying horizontally, etc.
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 “Word Shapes” worksheets, the student's eyes must guide their hand to copy the words in a fluid and controlled manner.
