*Visual perception - is the ability to interpret the surrounding environment using light in the visible spectrum reflected by the objects in the environment.
*Bilateral coordination - refers to the ability to coordinate both sides of the body at the same time in a controlled and organized manner; such as holding paper while cutting with scissors or lacing beads require the right and left sides of the body to work together.
*Sensory Integration - is the process that organizes sensation from one's own body and the environment, thus making it possible to use the body effectively within the environment.
