How to develop visual perception? Advice to parents and not only

of Literature (including articles in To School of Life ) about visual learners, audiala, kinestetika - is more than enough (about those who are informed through mind and intuition - slightly less, but too is available).

It is remarkable that it is focused most often on features of perception of information taking into account primary communication channel and contains recommendations in constructive part how to communicate with this or that type.

Mother - the visual learner and the child - audiat. You represent? Without additional efforts conversation of the blind person with the deaf will turn out. Mother - still, let us assume, if is informed, will try to transfer for the native child the thoughts in language clear to it (if does not forget), and what she will accept from it passers?

Of course, natural lucky to whom it is allowed to see - to hear exist - to feel without prejudice to any of these " lines; but them much less, than those who prefer some one. Fortunately, it is possible to learn to adjust the information antenna on different waves . And - not effort of will, and effortlessly.

As it is considered that among preadmirers most of all visual learners, we will begin, perhaps, with development of visual perception - to facilitate mutual understanding with this most mass population of communicants. Being engaged in group, in couple or even alone, it is possible to use such receptions.

1. Call! Leading (in group) or the adult - to the child (either other partner, or himself) suggests to call


- five objects which there is more / less car (a saucer, the refrigerator, own finger, etc.);

- five objects red (blue, green, yellow, motley) colors;

- all objects in the room which have in themselves a circle (a rectangle, a triangle, etc.) .

Further - at your discretion, in any options. For children it is possible to begin also with three objects, for adults - to increase some positions to ten (or to increase gradually). The choice for you!

Actually it is the first stage or warm-up which is good also in itself (and if the one who coped also wins a prize, and in general it is remarkable, resembles training less).

2. Present! Then can pass

to representation of fancies - pictures, for example, imagining as look:

- five favourite toys (dishes, berries, vegetables, books, disks, blouses - undershirts);

- five words beginning on the letter And (or any other);

- five different grades of flowers (trees, medicinal herbs, pets);

- five household appliances (brands of cars, pieces of furniture).

In case of group or pair occupations it is possible to call the presented objects after visualization. Anything, can be its subject - everything that can be seen.

The Chinese parable in a subject: The emperor asked somehow the court artist that it is the most difficult to draw, and that answered that cats and dogs therefore all too often see them. And on the following question: What the easiest to draw? told that spirits and gods because nobody ever saw them . Consider a joke if you begin to practice.

This stage can be preparation for the following.

3. Mental picture

Having taken a subject (a pen, a pencil, a ruler, a card) in hand, we stare at it, and then we close eyes (in group or in couple - on the leader`s signal). Several seconds a thing will remain before a mind`s eye. When its image thaws, eyes can be opened, again to look and again to consider a mind`s eye, i.e. blindly.

If to repeat such exercise in a rhythm, convenient for the person, then the image of a subject reproduced in imagination will be steadier, and the visual channel of information will begin to work more accurately.

4. The Imagined subject

Approximately the same that in To the Mental picture but at the same time there is no need to hold something in hand: the image is created in imagination. It will uskalzyvat first too, but gradually will become steadier. And it is already aerobatics when you are able to hold it in bright mental reproduction, and then still to move, increase or reduce...

When similar exercises are necessary? Well, for example, you noticed that the pupil does not love that the teacher drew on a board or showed tables, schedules, schemes And still when? Think and solve.

The most important - that classes were given in a game form, then interest - the main motivator of training will be your reliable assistant and the guarantor of progress.

We will talk about development of acoustical and kinestetichesky perception by all means too.

See you!
