Visual perception is (quite like it sounds) the ability to perceive differences visually.  Being able to see, recognize, and process the differences around us, is what helps us discern a red light from a green one, a “b” from a “d”, and know when our toast is adequately browned.  As children gain experience with visual perception, they are building observational skills that will help with science and sensory development, they will be more adept at recognizing the differences between letters and shapes for reading and math readiness, and they will have a greater sensitivity to the visual arts.
