Visual textures are small textures in the image or audio that help visually impaired children distinguish between objects in the scene, such as people, cats, flowers, birds, etc. Visual spatial, visual dyskinesia and visual texture disorders can cause a variety of visual impairments.
For instance, visual visual sensory dyslexics (VSD) cannot correctly distinguish between shapes in the landscape and in the sky, for instance, while visual visual visual disorders (VND) can often see and hear objects in pictures that are too close together.
Visual texture disorders are often seen in children and adolescents, which may explain why they can be particularly difficult for parents to work out how to help their children.
But there are also other reasons why parents may want to help young visual texture learners, and why their efforts can help to improve the lives of the people with visual impairment.
The benefits of visual texture treatments include:Improving reading comprehensionImprove communication between visual learners and teachersImprove attentional focus and attention control in children with visual texturesVisual texture treatments are effective in the classroom as well, where it helps to get children used to reading in the language of the visual environment and where the words are easy to understand and recall.
However, they are not always practical in the home.
For this reason, parents and teachers need to know what they can do to help visual learners with visual disorders and to improve their understanding of language, so they can have better control over how they read and communicate with others.
A good starting point for visual texture treatment is to use a colour-based, colour-sensitive text that is easily understood by children.
This will help to establish what is expected of children, and how to use that expectation to help them read in the different colour schemes and with different reading styles.
The key is to teach the children the meaning of the words, using the same visual vocabulary they are used to.
This is especially important for those children with disabilities that are visually impaired, such that the words may be difficult to understand without the words.
Children with visual disabilities may also benefit from visual colouring, for example, using a red background, which helps to colour their words and sentences more easily.
Another approach is to introduce children to visual colour, which involves giving children a colour palette and a way of reading them, which will help them to make sense of the colour.
Children who are visual texture users should also get their own colour-specific books and books that are suitable for their age and reading level.
For example, if children have visual visual dysperia, they may want a colour book that helps them to recognise objects that are different in colour, like flowers or cats, or that have different shades of grey, like the background of a room.
Children with visual texture will also benefit if they are given a variety, such an assortment of different books to read, which are easier to use, and which are free of charge.
For these reasons, it is important for teachers to be aware of the different approaches to helping children with dyslexias, and to make sure they have the tools and resources they need to help students with visual symptoms.
