Learning through the senses
The brain receives information through the senses; perception can be classified according to the kind of sensory input which it receives.
Visual perception is the way in which the brain interprets messages it receives through the eyes. Visual perception can be divided into several categories.
Visual discrimination is the ability to see similarities and differences between objects, pictures and symbols. This enables the child to sort, match and categorise. It is an essential skill for reading, spelling and maths.
Visual sequencing is the ability to arrange objects, pictures, shapes, letters and numbers in a logical order………first then next.
Visual seriation is the ability to arrange objects in increasing or decreasing order. Visual seriation involves understanding the meaning of words and concepts such as few, more, most – short, shorter and shortest.
