Visual processing skills are some of the most important for reading and writing. As you know, our visual systems mean everything when it comes to developing those important skills both in school and in life.

One very important area of a child’s visual system development is their visual discrimination. The President’s Day visual slide deck focuses on helping kids know and understand the differences between two pictures.

The activities are playful and easy for kids to spot the differences as they strengthen their visual discrimination skills.

Why is visual discrimination important?

A child’s visual discrimination is an essential piece to their overall visual processing development. A child’s visual discrimination allows them to compare features and details of different items.

Children who struggle with visual discrimination have a hard time knowing one item from another and often mix them up. When kids experience visual processing delays, kids often mix up their letters and numbers.

In addition, many parents begin to notice the child:

  • Struggling to see the differences between letters like “b” and “d” or “p” and “q”
  • Having a hard time knowing the differences between shapes
  • Struggling to see the differences in colors
  • Processing the differences in sizes (large or small)

Visual discrimination may not seem important while a child is young, but it is one of the key pieces for a child’s learning growth as they progress in reading and writing.

Free President’s Day Visual Discrimination Slide Deck

The free President’s Day visual discrimination slide deck is for parents, therapists and educators who want to help kids improve their visual processing skills. The exercises are easy and fun for the kids to complete at home or in online sessions.

To incorporate a visual processing element, we provide two pictures on each page. The child must determine what is different in each picture. The slides get a little more challenging toward the end of the slide deck.

If the child has trouble identifying the differences using their visual skills, simplify the activities based on their level of learning. Kids with visual processing delays may have a hard time completing some of the exercises. If the exercises are difficult for a child, they may need to be evaluated further for visual processing delays.

The free PDF sheet deck is a digital copy only and can be saved directly to your computer or hard drive.

After the sheet deck is saved, use the digital copy to print and re-print copies. This gives the child a chance to perform the exercises multiple times. Or, the sheet deck can be used for multiple students.
