Authors. Scientists. Adventurers…
The story of their lives was the story of my life.
Throughout my childhood and teenage years, my nickname was “bookworm.”
I devoured books. It seemed.
Every Friday, after her weekly shopping, my mom would go to the Christian bookstore and buy me a book. I read this, in addition to the ones I borrowed from the library.
Oh the dreams I had… the places I went… the people I met.
But I had one problem.
If your child cannot distinguish a shape or a printed character from its background, she is having trouble with visual figure-ground discrimination.
Yesterday, we looked at visual discrimination. Today, we’re going to take a brief look at this slightly different visual processing skill.
How can you tell your child is having this kind of dilemma?

“Life is like a departure lounge. The place you end up depends on which ticket you bought.” ~ Dr. Dion T. Harrigan
When children are born, they each come with their own “equipment.”
Law enforcement officers turn to their fingerprint files when searching for a criminal. The doors to some high-tech offices are now opened by the eye-print of the person seeking access. Blind people identify the person addressing them by their voice-print. An approaching individual can be recognized by his gait. The identity of a dead person may be ascertained by his dentition.
