Visual Discrimination is the ability of the child to be aware of the distinctive features of forms including shape, orientation, size, and color.
Some children can have difficulty finding the subtle difference between objects. Dr. James Partington often refers to this skill as "paying attention to fine detail."
Not paying attention to fine detail can affect children in different ways. Some may have difficulty in reading, math, differentiating between coins, letters and numbers. For example, bad and dad may look the same to a child.
Able2learn has put together many different activities to help your child with visual discrimination and visual preception. Browse through our programs. If your child has Autism Spectrum Disorder, "ASD", we reccomend purchasing the Assessment of Basic Language and Learning Skills -Revised (The ABLLS-R), and purchasing our assessment of the ABLLS-R. The assessment can only be done with the purchase of the ABLLS-R.
These materials were created to give parents an option to private therapy. We hope they are useful, time saving, and money saving.
