The visual processes of looking carefully, seeing differences, finding sequences, remembering shapes and sizes and tracking where the printed message goes (e.g. from left to right or top to bottom) are important skills for the acquisition of written language. Children who have a weakness with seeing, discriminating, identifying, holding place and recalling visual symbols will experience difficulty learning the symbol system of their written language, and may become written language disabled. Such children, who often appear "careless" with their reading accuracy, spelling or written presentation, may need exercises to help them learn to pay closer attention to print. Many years of helping people rehabilitate reading and writing processes and teaching special education children has led Iris to accumulate various activities which improve "looking skills".
This is a good resource to use with special needs children and kids with visual challenges.
Helps train the eye for skimming, scanning and tracking, visual discrimination, eye hand coordination etc. I originally purchased a copy when I did SPELD training but it was borrowed from me and never returned. I guess that person liked it too!
