Research reveals that there is a relationship between written language and the ability to draw or copy designs. If a child has problems with visual perceptual skills, fine motor skills, or visual motor integration, design copy activities can be an effective therapeutic activity.
Here are several of examples of “do it yourself” design copy worksheets that I frequently use with children who have visual motor challenges. The activity can be graded (made more challenging) by increasing the number of dots. Kids typically enjoy attempting to copy the designs, and this is a fun way to work on directionality, motor planning, attention to task, and visual motor skills.
