Visual perception skill
Visual perception refers to the brain’s ability to make sense of what the eyes see. This is not the same as visual acuity which refers to how clearly a person sees (for example “20/20 vision”). A person can have 20/20 vision and still have problems with visual perceptual processing.
Good visual perceptual skills are important for many every day skills such as reading, writing, completing puzzles, dressing, finding your sock on the bedroom floor as well as many other skills. Without the ability to complete these everyday tasks, a child’s self -can suffer and their academic and play performance is compromised.
If a child has difficulties with visual perception they might have difficulty:
- Completing puzzles or dot to dots.
- Differentiating between “b, d, p, q”
- Reversing numbers or letters when writing.
- Remembering left and right.
- Remembering the alphabet in sequence
- Dressing (i.e. matching shoes or socks).
- With hidden picture activities or finding a specific item in a cluttered desk.
