The Importance of Visual Stimulation
Vision is one of the primary ways we interact with the world and receive information about our surroundings. For those with cognitive or developmental disabilities, the brain has difficulties processing information, using motor skills and encoding.
Visual impairment or visual processing disorders may make navigating one’s environment more challenging. Visual stimulation allows the brain to process sensory information and promote sensory-motor experiences, supporting how the individual interprets visual meaning from what they see.
Adding visual activities to other forms of sensory toys and tools can enhance your sensory spaces with well-rounded sensory activities for individuals with disabilities.
How Visual Stimulation Toys Benefit Children and Adults
Visual stimulation toys offer many benefits for children and adults with cognitive and developmental disabilities, including:
- Relaxation: Fiber optic lighting or projectors can create a soothing space during stressful situations or help people unwind at the end of the day.
- Learning: Visual perception sensory toys can include educational elements for teaching deductive reasoning, organizational skills and critical thinking.
- Attention: With visual elements, people can focus on their learning experiences or practice visual tracking that supports information intake.
Regardless of a person’s sensory needs, visual stimulation toys can support comfort and learning requirements. Visual processing is a key developmental prerequisite for educational skills such as reading and math.
Types of Visual Sensory Toys
Visual sensory toys take on many forms. Some of the most common types include:
- Projectors: Projectors fill a room with shapes, colors and soothing scenes that create a calming environment full of visual input.
- Lamps: Sensory lamps have changing colors and act as night lights or stimulating toys during the day.
- Glowing toys: Glowing toys help people enjoy a fun animal or game that stimulates the visual senses in the brain.
