About the vision and visual perception resources

Resources for teachers and parents.

Vision, visual perception and auditory perception form the foundation on which reading and other academic skills are built. Thus it is important for Grade R practitioners to have an understanding of how children develop these capacities.

The booklets on vision and visual perception were developed by Roelien Herholdt as part of an educational psychology project in which Grade R teachers received training in understanding perceptual skills and developing practical resources to teach perceptual skills.   

The materials address key concepts and processes of vision and visual perception in an easily accessible way for parents and teachers alike. The visual perception worksheets are geared towards pre-school and Grade 1 learners and are organised per visual perception skill as well as from easy to difficult.
