The VISUAL PERCEPTION SKILLS series is a comprehensive collection of intervention materials aiming to offer dyslexic children the differentiated support they need in coping with the visual perception challenges that interfere with their reading and overall learning performance.
The eBook entitled Visual Closure is the 1st eBook of the series.
It comprises 192 pages of ready-to-use activities aiming to enhance children’s visual closure skills (one of the seven components of visual perceptual skills) along with a theoretical section that provides useful background information on how visual perception skills impact on a child’s development.
Laid out in a colourful and easy-to-use format, it is ideal for specialist teachers, occupational therapists, speech pathologists and parents who are looking for ready-to-use and engaging activities to build their children’s confidence in processing visual information.
Visual perception skills affect a number of areas in a child’s development, ranging from motor and learning skills to essential life skills. It is therefore vital that the visual aspects of dyslexia are effectively addressed. The prime purpose of this eBook series is to act as a genuinely helpful tool for parents and specialists who need easy-to-use and enjoyable activities to support their children with dyslexia.
Visual closure is the ability to identify a whole shape, form or function from an incomplete visual representation. It underpins children’s ability to spell, read and comprehend texts effectively and at speed. Children with visual closure deficits experience major difficulties in processing incomplete visual information, which, in turn, severely affects their confidence and overall learning performance.
Using this set of resources you can transform the daunting task of addressing visual perception difficulties into an enjoyable and rewarding learning experience.

Visual Perception Skills for Children with Dyslexia | PART 1: Visual Closure
This book was recommended by my son's dyslexia tutor. It was useful in building up his confidence with visual tasks, although he was not ready for all of the pages immediately. My son enjoyed the visual tasks without words most, and sped through them but he did eventually go back to finish some of the letter/number/word ones with the center of the word missing. We are now ready for book 2!
This is a great resource that I will be able to use across many levels of ability. I really like that it is not too immature looking as many resources are so the older students will be happy to engage with it too.

Visual Closure is such an important skill for both reading and handwriting. Indeed, Visual Closure is one of the three most significant predictors of printing speed. This attractive book contains the resources for training a child to pay attention to the details that give them clues about what an incomplete image may be. With three different levels of difficulty, and individual sheets or engaging games, a therapist or teacher has a choice of resources to suit a variety of situations.
