What is Visual Perception?

Visual Perception is the ability to interpret, analyse and give meaning to what is seen. This is of the utmost importance when establishing the building blocks for learning. Your child is constantly learning through visual opportunities which present themselves in everyday life at home, at school, in social interaction and in play. Up to 80% of what they learn is through visual opportunities.

Most children will successfully be able to develop the ability to recognise, recall and make sense of what they see, but a breakdown in this process can hinder your child's ability to learn.   If visual perception is incorrect or altered in any way, a child will present with reading, spelling, handwriting, maths and comprehension problems.
