What is Visual Discrimination?

An ability to identify the similarities and differences between shapes, sizes, patterns, colours and objects.

Why is it needed?

In order to interpret the environment around us, visual discrimination skills become mandatory. Equally important is the time when we as parents start working on developing these skills for our toddlers/pre-schoolers.

There are lot of activity workbooks available in the market to practice these skills and the internet is equally flooded with free printables which may be easily printed and practiced. Click here for some Free visual discrimination worksheets printables to get you started.

But again we cannot expect our little ones to sit for a longer duration and practice, so it has to be hands on for them, not ignoring the importance of paper pencil but a blend of both makes it interesting for them

Do as directed with colour counters

We bought these colour counters and mats from a local stationary store. As a part of our family time, we played this wonderful game.

I was the one who was the instructor and the little one and his father had to follow my instructions. I called out the name of a colour and they had to pick them and put it on the mat. We did this till all the places were occupied.

I kept in some and they had the liberty to put it anywhere on the mat. Parents may even choose a particular sequence.

Jumping Jack

A gross motor activity which can be done on the terrace or not that busy a street. We make patterns on the road, for example, a circle with a star, triangle, then another circle with a star, circle, another one with a circle and a triangle and so one.

Then the parent gives instruction to the child to jump from one circle to another following the clue, for example jump to the circle which has a star and a triangle and so on.
