Visual discrimination is the ability to find a difference in the same kind of images(though it’s minor). Discriminating between the visuals is much essential in every other place for a kid. For ex. Many kids may have difficulty in distinguishing “b” and “p” in the same way between “9” and “6” and many more once they started their schooling Developing this skill in the earlier days may help them to cope up with differences in future.

Spatial intelligence is the ability to find, visualize the position of the same object, shapes. For ex: If three objects are placed at position a,b,c in image1 and the same set of objects are shuffled and placed as b,c,a in image 2, kids have to find and differentiate both images correctly.

  • Draw a picture with slight variation and ask the kid to match it.
