    Game Information

    Visual discrimination is the ability to see an object or form distinct from other objects/forms. This is important when we're presented with a lot of visual information at one time. It is the ability to screen out irrelevant visual material in order to concentrate on the important item. Having visual discrimination is a prerequisite for visual discrimination.

    Children with visual discrimination weakness may have difficulty with:

    1. Concentrating on relevant information for example on a page, picking out certain words

    2. Ignoring what is irrelevant

    3. Shifting attention appropriately

    4. Finding specific places E.g. In text, maps or books

    5. Noticing all the relevant words in a question, identifying key words or developing "skim and scan" skills

    6. Keeping place when reading, completing a worksheet or copying from the board and quickly finding the last place left off

    7. Organising written work and labelling diagrams

    8. Completing work on "busy" paper with lots of visual information on it

    9. In written assignments, may miss out sections or parts of it.

    10. Drawing a straight line between two points

    11. Losing their place in number work

    12. Seem inattentive and distracted, especially when having to look at board 13. Finding a specific toy in a toybox, or a certain sock in sock drawer.

    This app, developed by Occupational therapists, and trialled within the clinic and home setting, will help to improve visual discrimination. It gradually moves from picking out toys and shapes,to more complex letter and word sequences.

    Children should do each exercise at least twice before moving onto the next level.

    Aim to improve speed at which games are completed.
