Visual Motor Skills

Visual motor skills include a coordination of visual information that is perceived and processed with motor skills, including fine motor, gross motor, and sensory motor.

Visual Motor Skills are made up of many areas related to vision and the ability to perceive sight with relation to movement of the hands and body in functional tasks.  Hand-eye coordination is a visual motor skill.

ARTb develops visual motor skills by engaging with a user’s visual awareness of where the instructional lines are on the paper and a user’s body awareness and muscular actions so as to complete the tasks being shown. For instance, tearing along a line to that line’s completion requires a user to see the line, interpret it’s meaning, manipulate muscles to accomplish that action, and coordinate their visual awareness with their muscular movements until that task is complete — the line stops.

Visual perceptual skills make up an important component of visual motor skills.
