Form Constancy

The understanding and ability to visually recognize shapes despite differences in position, size, or texture.

How many spoons do you see in the image below?

Pictures of 9 spoons of different sizes, colors, and orientations are arranged on a white background with a few forks also scattered throughout.

If you counted 9, then you are able to distinguish spoons from other utensils even when different colors, sizes, and orientations! If your child had difficulty with this, consider contacting our OTs for an assessment!
