Why Should Visual Perception Skill Must for Kids Improve Visualization?

Visual Perceptual Skills :

Visual Perception simply refers to the brain’s ability to make sense of what the eyes see. Now many people tend to mix up this concept with visual acuity, which refers to how clearly a person sees. But what we need to keep in mind is that irrespective of how clearly a person is able to see he or she might still have problems with visual perceptual processing.

Visual perceptual skills help kids to obtain and establish visual information from the environment and try to understand what they see.


Form Constancy: 

Ability to identify a form even if it is different in size, orientation, color, or texture. This skill also helps children recognize an object in different contexts regardless of changes in size, shape, and orientation. Children with poor form-constancy may struggle to recognize objects when turned a different direction or  viewed from a different angle. They would fail to recognize even the words they know if they are presented in a different manner.
