    Visual motor skills is another term for eye-hand coordination, which means that the eyes and hands work together smoothly. STRONG HAND & FINGER MUSCLES AND GOOD EYESIGHT ARE NECESSARY FOR EYE-HAND COORDINATION.

    Some activities to help improve visual motor skills are: stringing beads or other items, Etch-a-sketch, Magnadoodle, putting small items into small containers or through lids with slots in them, catching a ball, and tossing bean bags at a target. Activity books that include dot to dot pictures and mazes are a great inexpensive way to work on eye-hand coordination.

    Visual perceptual skills include visual memory, visual discrimination, and spatial relationships (how objects are oriented to each other and to you).

    Some activities to help improve visual perceptual skills are: sorting items, memory games (you can buy the game or use cards or other items), target games, puzzles, the game Perfection, I Spy or Where's Waldo, and building sets (building from a model or picture) such as blocks, Legos, or Kinex.
