Learners with perceptual disabilities related to vision have problems with all aspects of learning (e.g. reading, writing, and mathematics), as these aspects provide the basis for scholastic skills.

  • Auditory analysis and synthesis (the ability to break up words into sounds and to reassemble them)

Examples of activities:

  • Sounding a word, e.g. c-a-t; then asking the child what he / she has heard
  • Saying a word, e.g. sun; asking the child to sound it.
