Visual Perception Skills for Children with Dyslexia | PART 4: Visual Memory
AGE GROUP: 6+
The book Visual Memory is the fourth in a series of seven eBooks that provide intervention material aimed at developing the visual perception skills of school-age children. It contains exercises and activities designed to enhance the visual skill of visual memory.
Laid out in a colourful and easy-to-use format, it is addressed to special education needs teachers, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, parents and schoolteachers who aim to support their children in developing and strengthening their skills. It introduces a set of games and activities that build and enhance visual perceptual skills in an enjoyable and interactive way.
Visual memory is the ability to retain information over an appropriate period of time. Obtaining maximum information in the shortest possible time provides for optimal performance and is essential for reading comprehension and spelling. Visual memory deficiencies lead to slow copying speed, difficulty recognising words and retaining information.
The effectiveness of visual memory depends on attention, concentration, observation and motivation. The relation between visual memory and other forms of memory (auditory, tactile) is crucial.
Visual memory is a complex cognitive system that brings together various types of memory. It can be classified as short-term, long-term and sequential.
The book includes inter alia:
- 206 worksheets
- activities aiming at recalling two or three elements
- activities aiming at recalling four elements with a visual aid
- activities aiming at recalling elements after answering questions
- activities aiming at recalling pictures, shapes and patterns of graded difficulty
- interactive games and activities
Visual perceptual skills influence several aspects of children’s development and everyday life, ranging from (mixed) motor skills to essential life aptitudes.
