Many of the sensations we experience daily are so innate that they simply go unnoticed. The ability to absorb and process visual information is called visual perception, and it is an important part of early childhood development. Perception is the cognitive process by which the brain interprets information collected by the sensory organs. Your eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and hands don’t draw conclusions about the senses they experience – they collect data and send it to the brain to process and interpret the data.

Simply put, visual perception is the brain’s ability to interpret what is seen. This encompasses everything from spatial orientation to texture, color, and subject matter. Visual perception does not have anything to do with the function of the eyesight, such as how clearly a person sees. It refers to the brain’s ability to draw conclusions from the information absorbed through the eyes.

Visual perception is necessary for reading, writing, and movement. Without it, children may find daily tasks such as completing homework, solving puzzles, or getting dressed extremely stressful. This can lead to poor self-esteem and academic or social obstacles, so it is important to recognize the signs and symptoms of appropriate development.

So, give your brain a healthy challenge. Try puzzles every day!
