Visual Discrimination and Directionality Activities
Visual Discrimination and Directionality Activities (digital download - usable on a computer or iPad) was created for young kids, students, and older individuals with weak visual discrimination and directionality skills, so proficiency can be achieved while having fun. Visual discrimination is the ability to detect subtle differences in objects, including letters and numbers, and to distinguish them from ones that are similar. Directionality refers to the ability to discriminate between left and right, east and west, and objects or images that are facing left or right. Those that struggle with these two skills may have difficulty discriminating similar letters such as b from d or the greater sign from the lesser sign. They may also have a hard time telling the difference between similar-looking symbols such as the letter s and number 5. These skills are acquired gradually, and they may improve at different rates and for each learner. As a result, anyone that desires to exercise and improve these visual processing skills can benefit from doing the activities in this publication. With continued use, this workbook can be used as an outstanding, remedial tool.
The publication is 52 pages and offers a generous assortment of enjoyable activities to exercise and realize these needed skills.
