Book Description

February 1, 2005 1556425953 978-1556425950 1st

With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Kenneth A. Lane has designed Developing Ocular Motor and Visual Perceptual Skills: An Activity Workbook to help occupational therapists, optometrists, and other professionals develop the ocular motor and visual perceptual skills of learning disabled children.

To establish a framework for understanding, each chapter begins with the scientific theories used to develop the activity forms. Insightful suggestions are included on how to solidify the program's success.

The easy-to-follow activity forms are then presented, along with numerous illustrations that help develop ocular motor and visual perceptual skills. The forms are divided into as many as five levels of difficulty so both children and teenagers can benefit from each activity.

Developing Ocular Motor and Visual Perceptual Skills contains daily lesson plans and practical tips on how to successfully start an activities program. Other helpful features include a glossary of terms and a reference list of individuals and organizations that work with learning disabled children to develop these skills.

The first of its kind, Developing Ocular Motor and Visual Perceptual Skills utilizes a learning approach by linking the theories with the remediation activities to help learning disabled children improve their perceptual and fine motor skills. All professionals looking to assess and enhance a variety of fine motor and visual perception deficiencies will welcome this workbook into their practices.

Topics include:

  • Complexity of reading
  • Ocular motor
  • Gross motor
  • Visual-motor perception
  • Visual memory
  • Laterality
  • Reversals

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book! January 7, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am a COTA (Occupational Therapy) working in a local school district with mostly k-2nd grade. There is a wealth of information and activities to develop visual motor and ocular motor skills. The descriptions of the different areas are fairly easy to understand although someone without an education in this area may find some of it a bit difficult. Even so, the activities are easy to understand and follow. I highly recommend this book to anyone working in occupational therapy.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a great primer April 3, 2009
Format:Paperback
Any professional working with reading difficulties will quickly note the difference in a child's reading skills when ocular motor training is needed to help the eyes work together smoothly. Tracking and other eye functions can create headaches and reading phobias in young readers. This book is tremendously helpful for those are interested in providing targeted groups and individual remediation activities.
