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.
