Visual perception is the process where the brain extracts and organises information, giving meaning to what we see. I am pleased to share with you a new reference sheet that I have been slowly working on for the last 12 months. This is a valuable resource especially for OTs and teachers! I wish I had a copy when I first started out as an OT!
It was a great honour to have some of my fellow therapy bloggers review and edit this reference sheet! Special thanks to Lyn (lynaot), Becca (OT mommy) and Jaime (Miss Jaime OT)!
The visual perception reference sheet contains definitions for eight components of visual perception, forty-five every day examples where visual perception is needed and potential areas of difficulty as well as forty-five strategies to assist with visual perception.
Over the coming months I will be sharing information about each component area (bite size chunks so it is not too overwhelming). However, if you would like all the information now then please purchase the reference sheet for yourself from the Your Kids OT Shop!
When reading and applying the strategies in this reference sheet, please keep in mind the following:
To give you a "taste" of what is in the reference sheet, here is the first component of visual perception that I write about.
The coordinated control of eye movement with hand movement. This includes the ability to process visual information to guide hand function.
Everyday examples where visual perception is needed and potential areas of difficulty.
Strategies to assist.
There are lots of great resources that I am looking forward to sharing with you in the coming weeks to help your child/ren with their visual perceptual skills including a brand new app that has been recently launched.
Purchase your copy of the visual perception reference sheet from the Your Kids OT shop or if you prefer you may also purchase this from Teachers Pay Teachers! Let me know what you think!
STOP PRESS: Are you following Your Kids OT on Facebook? I'm giving away 20 copies of this reference sheet on Monday 17th (Sydney time)! Be quick!
Thank you for your ongoing support!
