Parents, teachers, and OT's can use this resource to address a child's visual and auditory processing skills.
Designed by an occupational therapist, SUMMER DETECTIVE presents 8 activities that focus on a child's ability to "look" and "listen". It is for all children, pre-k through first grade, though older kids benefit too.
Visual and auditory foundation skills are key to achieving success in school.
Detective themed summer activities in this resource have kids visually scanning their outdoor environments and paying attention to details. Auditory activities encourage children to listen for specific sounds. Greater attention to the details of sight and sound is a step toward better academics!
