Name:​​ Visual Spatial Skills​​ -​​ Recognizing Objects​​ Manual​​ 

SKU:​​ VSSROGOT

Solution Plan:  ​​​​ 

Visual-spatial​​ processing is the​​ ability​​ to tell where​​ objects​​ are in space. That includes your own body parts. It also involves being able tell how far​​ objects​​ are from you and from each other

The​​ visual system precedes the​​ ability for visual analysis and understanding. Two distinct parts of the brain are engaged in this process, each with its own purpose:

  • analysis of the shape of objects

  • analysis of object spatial properties (size, location, orientation)

 

Visual Closure​​ is the ability to identify a form or object from an incomplete presentation (this is when the entire object is not visible).​​ 

  • This involves visualizing and mentally "filling in" the visual information that is missing.​​ 

 

  • This skill helps to quickly process information in​​ the​​ environment because​​ the​​ visual system doesn't have to analyze every detail to recognize what​​ is being seen.​​ 

 

  • An individual with poor Visual Closure skills has difficulty visualizing the​​ whole of an object​​ when part of it is hidden or missing. For example, visualizing the missing parts of a poorly photocopied page of print or pictures, or recognizing an object when it is partially hidden by other objects in front of it​​ when reading.​​ *​​ 

 

  • Visual Closure perception helps recognize sight words. It is a foundation skill for fluency and speed in reading and spelling.​​ ​​ A​​ perfect example of how we "fill in the blanks" when reading.
