Overview

It is becoming increasingly more difficult (in a world with an abundance of complex visual stimuli) to develop healthy visual-motor abilities.

Our visual experiences can be overwhelmed by the vast complexity of artificial colours and sounds which did not exist in years past. Much more time is spent indoors, exposed to a myriad of unnatural colours, movement and imagery.

Eyegames: Easy and Fun Visual Exercises is a valuable and practical resource for Occupational Therapists and Optometrists, by providing an overview of the development of vision, with a checklist of warning signs of vision problems-based on the studies of behavioural optometry.

This book stresses the importance of integrating all the senses equally in the development of optimal visual skills, rooted in the field of occupational therapy.

Including practical, playful activities designed to improve visual skills in both adults and children, it is excellent for use at home, in the clinic, at school, or amid outdoor settings.
