Good point. Kenneth’s reliance on proprioceptive feedback and strong muscle memory could help compensate for some visual-motor challenges in certain situations:
– Activities he’s highly practiced at, like handwriting homework assignments, may be less impacted due to engrained proprioceptive motor programs.
– Tactile typing familiarity could allow relatively preserved performance despite slower visual scanning speeds.
– Driving on consistent routes may benefit from established proprioceptive route navigation despite reduced hazard scanning.
– Sports involving ball skills extensively honed through proprioceptive learning like shooting may be less impaired.
– Daily tasks with over-learned sequencing like getting dressed may utilize stored motor programs.
However, his strengths have limits:
– Novel motor skills lacking engrained proprioception like learning a musical instrument may be very difficult.
– Rapidly evolving visual environments like driving in an unfamiliar area challenge compensatory mechanisms.
– Sports with atypical movement patterns or irregular surfaces could still cause issues.
So in summary, while proprioception provides some mitigation, visual-motor challenges will likely persist in new motor contexts without established muscular “scaffolding” to rely on.[responsivevoice_button voice="US English Male"]
