Visual Sequencing and Form Constancy Activities
Visual Sequencing and Form Constancy Activities was created for kids and older individuals with weak visual sequencing and visual form constancy skills, so they can develop and strengthen these visual processing skills while having fun. It is a digital download that can be printed or used on a computer or tablet. In addition, most of the pages can be used in online sessions.
What are Visual Sequencing and Form Constancy?
Visual sequencing is the ability to organize images in a particular order. This skill is needed for reading, spelling (arranging letters in a particular order), mathematics, history, science, sports, etc. Form Constancy is the ability to identify or sort objects, shapes, symbols, letters, and/or words, despite differences in style, size, perspective or position. Those that struggle with this skill may have difficulty making sense of details from visually dense text. These two skills develop over time, and they often improve at different rates for each individual. Therefore, anyone that wants to exercise and improve these visual processing skills can benefit from this digital workbook. With repeated use, it can be used as an excellent remedial tool.
What Makes These Activities Different and Better from Other Visual Sequential Activities?
Many students that struggle with visual memory tasks utilize auditory processing skills as a compensatory strategy by assigning images with names. For example, instead of holding a visual depiction in memory, they remember a series of words. Although this can be an effective memory tool, it also prevents students from exercising and developing this needed skill. As a result, images and colors were carefully selected which make it difficult for students to implement verbal rehearsal strategies. For example, they may view three images that are all a single color and they all look like a sun, but each image is distinct from the others.
