The book "Visual Perception Skills for Children with Dyslexia | PART 1: Visual Closure" is the 1st book of the series and 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 book 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.
