Visual perception is the ability to see and interpret (analyze and give meaning to) the visual information that surrounds us.
~ The Advanced Vision Therapy Center
Visual perceptual skills involve the ability to organize and interpret the information that is seen and give it meaning.
If perception is inaccurate, incorrect or altered in any way – problems with reading, spelling, handwriting, math and comprehension occur.
ARTb activities work to improve visual perceptual skills by exercising the user’s perception of each line on the page to communicate actions — many of which involve continued perceptual concentration as the user follows said visual signals to complete the task. This is in line with the practices of clarifying lines for dyslexia therapy and other visual perceptual therapies. The user may follow the lines with their fingers to further clarify their understanding of the line in its entirety. Often, the user is required to take a full understanding of the line both visually and manually as they tear, scissor cut, or otherwise manipulate the page based directly on the line and it’s path.
