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
