Visual Motor Skills

The ability to observe, recognize, and use visual information about forms, shapes, figures, and objects makes up our visual motor abilities. 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. Occupational therapists address visual motor skills through therapeutic activities for practice and teaching, strengthening, adaption of tasks and/or materials (i.e. pencil grip), and education of specific techniques.
