Visual Discrimination

Visual Discrimination lets us see differences between objects that are similar.  Good visual discrimination helps keep us from getting confused.  For example, when we read, it’s visual discrimination that let’s us see the “was” and “saw” are different even though they have the same letters. Puzzle games that ask us to tell how two pictures are different are good ways to help develop visual discrimination.
