visual perception printable activities

These printable visual perceptual worksheets can be used to supplement hands on activities as part of your child's visual perceptual development.

Quick Links To Visual Perceptual Worksheets:


Patterns, Patterns, Patterns

One of the best value-for-money books with 50+ worksheets that address a whole range of visual perceptual skills.


Only $4.99!

Add To Cart

Patterns of objects make up the majority of the worksheets (hence the name!)

The first 8 pages of visual discrimination worksheets involve visually scanning from left to right in order to find the given items, so I would recommend that you sit opposite your child to make sure he/she is scanning to find the objects and not jumping all over the place visually.

There are worksheets that require figure-ground perception and visual closure. There are quite a few worksheets that practice visual-motor skills. If your child has poor pencil skills: he/she can point out the answers, or trace with their fingers.

There are visual motor puzzles in grid format where the child needs to copy lines or shapes in a grid - for these, two copies can be made, cutting one set out, and having a child with poor pencil skills position the pictures correctly instead of drawing them.

Size: 3 MB
Printing: All pages are in black & white. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Included in the Mini and Mega Visual Perceptual Bundles and in the Visual Motor Bundle at a 30% discount!

There are 20 reproducible Graphing Games (10 themes containing 2 graphs each) in lovely detail that can be used to promote math skills, form constancy, visual closure and visual discrimination skills.

Size: 7 MB
Printing: These activity pages deserve to be printed in color (and  laminated), but can be used in black/white to increase the visual perceptual skills challenge.

Speed Match

Another bargain buy!

Only $2.99!

Add To Cart

I LOVE this ebook! Suitable from kindergarten.

There are 20 totally different sets of pictures that are presented in the same format - which is a set of small cards that need to be cut up (by child or parent) and then matched to the main set of pictures. The idea is that the child races against a timer, but this is optional - I prefer to let a younger child work without a timer, but older children may like the timed challenges.

Depending on the puzzle, the child uses visual discrimination, visual closure, figure-ground perception and/or position in space skills.


Size: 22 MB
Printing:
it is worth printing these in color and laminating them but printing in black and white simply adds to the visual discrimination challenge and works well.

Visual Discrimination Puzzles

A set of 24 worksheets.

Only $4.99!

Add To Cart

This is a set of 24 puzzles that follow the same format: the child has to scan the grid and cross out the item (letter, number, image) that occurs more than once. Although the same format is followed, the pages cover a variety of themes..

To complete the task requires some planning skills as well visual memory (holding the latter/number/image in your head) and visual discrimination (scanning the sheet for identical objects). The puzzles also reinforce the skill of visually scanning from left to right. I recommend you sit opposite your child to make sure that the visual scanning is happening correctly!

The letter grids produce a secret word made up of left-over letters, the number grids give you the number of seconds/repetitions for which an exercise must be done, and the image puzzles produce a brief exercise or hand-muscle routine to be done using the remaining images. A fun concept!

Find The Animals

Work on directionality, visual motor and visual tracking skills!

Only $2.99!

Add To Cart

Beginning on the specified "start" box, kids need to follow the arrows to find the animal and then either color the animal, or put a specified shape around it.

  • Really nice way of working on directionality and spatial orientation skills.
  • The visual motor demand comes from keeping the path of the pencil within the boxes. Visual scanning and tracking skills are also brought into play as your child scans ahead to count the blocks and direction in which to travel.

Increase the spatial orientation challenge:  Cover up the arrows at the bottom and then give your child the verbal instructions (eg "move two blocks to the left"). Your child won't have the visual clues of the arrows to help, and will be using more spatial orientation.

Increase the auditory memory challenge: Cover up the arrows as above but give your child two or more verbal instructions at a time, (eg "move two blocks to the left then one block down").

Size: 6.5MB
Printing: Black and White. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

The worksheets have a shaded, slightly patterned background, filled with white figures and objects that your child needs to find and color according to the instructions.

The instructions can be read out loud by a parent or by the student themselves. A typical instruction might say "Color all 6 stars yellow" or "color the parrot int he tree red".

Magnified Monsters

This is a great little resource for figure-ground perception, visual discrimination and visual scanning!

Only $1.99

Add To Cart

The activities are presented in 2 different ways.  In both, your child is presented with a piece of a monster and needs to pay attention to small details in order to find the monster which matches the piece.

The colour format makes it a little easier to differentiate between monsters. You can increase the visual discrimination demand by printing in black and white, which reduces the "clues" given to your child and will force your child to pay close attention to spot the tiny details to identify the exact monster.

Help your child to pay attention to the small details such as the shape of the tooth, the style of "hair' in the background, etc, in order to differentiate between similar looking monsters.

Beautiful full-colour monsters!
Add challenge with Black and White printing

Size: 5MB
Printing: Color printing is recommended for easier challenges. You can print in good quality black and white to increase the challenge for older kids. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Find the Differences

Encourage figure-ground perception, visual discrimination and visual scanning skills.

Only $2.99

These standard "find the difference" pictures, covering all kinds of themes, are ideal for younger children or for those who struggle with figure-ground perception or visual discrimination.


The pictures are clear, not too detailed, and there are just 5 differences between each picture. I really like the simplicity of the black and white line pictures, which enable the child to focus on finding differences without being overwhelmed with details.

Size: 6MB
Printing: Black and White. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

School Doodle Find

A fun back-to-school theme that can be used any time of year!

Only $2.99

Add To Cart

This set of activities works on visual scanning, visual tracking, figure-ground perception and visual discrimination skills. The activities are presented in a find and color and a game board format, and can be used one-on-one or in an activity station.

If you want to work on visual tracking and scanning, I recommend you sit opposite your child and show him/her how to track across the page, using a finger to guide the eyes. If this is too hard, cut a "window" in a piece of cardstock to help your child focus in just one area at a time.

Size: 28 MB
Printing: Color is best, but B&W can increase the challenge for older kids. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

Memory Challenge

Work on your child's visual memory and/or auditory memory with this download!

Only $3.99

Add To Cart

Although the sheets come with space for your child to write the answers, you can easily do this verbally with your child and ask your child to TELL you what he/she remembers.

Or print a duplicate sheet, cut out the objects and ask your child to point out the remembered pictures.

There are 3 different kinds of sheets, which can be used in different ways to vary the demand for your child.

There are 5 black and white sheets that contain line drawings that are easily identifiable and should be familiar to your child.

Then there are sheets that contain 12 coloured pics around a theme (eg fruit). Try to choose a theme with which your child is familiar (eg don't use the fruit sheet if your child is unfamiliar with the different fruits). I personally found the pictures to be a little abstract (and therefore potentially hard to identfy), but if you use a duplicate sheet which is cut up, your child can point out what was seen instead of verbalising.

The third set of sheets contain "memory boards" - sheets that are filled with a variety of small, colorful, unrelated objects. The idea is that your child study the sheets and then tell you what he/she can remember seeing. There are quite literally hundreds of objects on each memory board, so you can make it easier by cutting or folding the sheets to show your child just one part at a time.

Size: 6MB
Printing: Color is best. Although the second set of sheets is in black and white,  the first and third sets need to be printed in color for best results. You may reprint this resource as often as you need to.

How The Visual Perceptual E-books Work:

These e-books were designed and compiled by a team of  pediatric therapists and special education teachers over at Your Therapy Source. I am grateful for their hard work and generosity at making these worksheets available in e-book format.

You are allowed to print as many copies as you need for the children in your family, classroom or therapy room, so they are great value for money.

I have tried all these e-books myself and believe they are well worth the tiny investment if you want to improve your child's visual perceptual skills. The e-books are available individually, but first check out the great bundle deals that are exclusive to OT Mom's readers!

If you are looking for free resources, there are lots of free activities on my site, just search with the box at the bottom of this page!

Click on the "Add to Cart" button for the e-books you want, and once your order is complete, pay for it and then you will receive download links for the e-books, which come in PDF format. Save them to your PC and then print out the pages as and when you need them.

Honesty Point

As an affiliate for Your Therapy Source, I will receive a small commission on the sale of any of these visual perceptual skills e-books if they are purchased from my site. However, the reviews are all mine and completely honest. I had found and used their products before requesting to make these e-books available to my visitors.

Thank you for supporting my site!

I hope that you will find these visual perceptual worksheets as helpful as I did! I used them with my own kids as well as those I saw in practice.

Thank you for visiting my site!
