Solution Name:​​ Manipulating and Constructing Objects

SKU:​​ VSMCCOT

Solution Plan: ​​ 

  • Children use visual-spatial processing skills to read maps, follow dance moves and solve some math problems.

  • They also need these skills to make sense of letters and numbers.

  • Most tasks that involve visual-spatial processing skills also require additional visual processing skills.

Math requires visual-spatial processing skills. For example, to solve a problem like 10+2=12, a child must:

  • Perceive how numbers and symbols are placed in relation to each other on a page and how that placement matters when solving an equation (this also involves visual-sequencing skills).​​ 

  • Be able to align numbers vertically so she can add or subtract multi-digit numbers.

Visual-spatial- Additional Information​​ 

Visual-spatial problems may interfere with a child’s ability to perform math problems correctly. Examples of visual-spatial difficulties include:

  • misaligning numerals in columns for calculation

  • problems with place value that involves understanding the base ten system

  • trouble interpreting maps and understanding geometry
