Definition: A general term for visual skills that require the ability to detect specific features of an object to recognize it, to match or duplicate it, and to categorize it.

* Medical Dictionary for the Health Professions and Nursing © Farlex 2012 (http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Visual+Discrimination)

Visual Discrimination is a general title that includes:
• visual discrimination,
• figure ground and
• visual memory skill development.

Visual discrimination: Activities like sorting shapes strengthen a child's observational skills … a process that enables the brain to interpret visual information.

Figure Ground: Finding “Waldo” challenges the brain to search for a hidden picture among lots of visual images. Playing games like “I Spy” or going on a scavenger hunt also develop the ability to visually locate and identify shapes and object embedded in a busy background.

Visual Memory: To a child a chair is a chair no matter which way you flip or turn it. Now we tell them that the symbols for letters and numbers may look similar but they have different meanings! Learning to identify and name colors and shapes helps to develop visual memory skills.

I decided to present these concepts visually as task cards!

Please Note: Classroom resources are needed to do these tasks.

Have fun!
