Visual Perceptual Skills

The ability to interpret, understand, recall, and differentiate what is seen in the environment.

Visual perceptual skills include:

  1. Visual memory
  2. Visual discrimination
  3. Figure-ground
  4. Form constancy
  5. Visual closure

Difficulties in this area can interfere with a child’s ability to learn self-help skills like tying shoelaces, academic tasks like copying from the board, or even to difficulty walking or navigating stairs!
