It is important to the development of many skills, reading, writing, drawing, colouring, puzzles, cutting and many other important skills necessary for daily living and academics. Working on visual perception can increase a child’s performance and self esteem, especially in the classroom among their peers, and overall happiness from accomplishments.
Many times children with Autism have difficulty working on skills that sometimes come easier to their peers, I took the skill of drawing and broke it down into simple to follow steps for our kiddos to learn, become successful, build cognitive skills, learn to copy, hold a pencil properly, work on learning to draw simple objects, follow directions and, to be part of an inclusive classroom, adaptive materials are important to keep our children in the classroom with their peers, a place where social skills development can happen naturally.
Activities like drawing help develop visual perception, colour identification, visual sequencing, copying, sequencing, fine motor skills, spatial awareness and, in our exclusive FREE Able2learn education materials, reading and comprehension.
