Visual Perception is important to the development of many skills, reading, writing, drawing, colouring, puzzles, cutting and many other important skills necessary for daily living and academics. Working on visual perception can increase a child’s performance and self esteem, especially in the classroom among their peers, and overall happiness from accomplishments. I spent many evenings working with Niam on visual perception skills. It was harder for Niam to learn and he required more practice than my older son who grasped concepts much easier. It is important not to give up!
I developed Visual Perception Worksheets across a number of academic subjects to allow Niam to work on this important skill while keeping up with his academics. Download our free Guided Visual Printing Book.
Many times children with Autism have difficulty working on skills that sometimes come easier to their peers, I took the skill of drawing and broke it down into simple to follow steps for our kiddos to learn, become successful and build cognitive skills. Learning to draw can lead to other skills such as learning to copy, hold a pencil properly and following directions. These materials can be used by parents at home to practice skills, by teachers and therapists. Many teachers are using the materials in an inclusive classroom. Inclusive classrooms are important for many skill development including social skills.
Any child can benefit from these programs regardless of disability.
