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 who work with learning disabled children to develop ocular motor and visual perceptual skills. To establish a framework for understanding, each chapter begins with the scientific theories used to develop the activities. The easy-to-follow activities are then presented, along with numerous illustrations that help develop ocular motor and visual perceptual skills. All the activities are divided into five levels of difficulty so both children and teenagers can benefit from each activity. The chapters conclude with suggestions on how to solidify the program's success.
