Use gestures: Using gestures will help the individual better retain information especially if that information is regarding maps or models that need to be rotated. Recreating those moves with the physical body will help better retain information as it frees up the working memory. This means that the individual does not need to memorize information but use memory instead.
Explore the physical world: Exploring the real world will teach the individual to visualize space and distance in the best way possible, that is by being a part of it. Going out in the world and exploring roads, bridges, cities and mountains will help the individual understand how far distance is and how the size of buildings. Within a short amount of time the individual will retain this information and will not have to reference books, magazines etc.
