Mind The Gap

Visual closure is a cognitive skill that allows individuals to recognize or identify objects and forms even when part of the visual information is missing or incomplete. For example, when we only see a portion of an object because it's blocked by another object, our brain can still 'fill in the gaps' and recognize the partially hidden object.

This skill is not only essential for everyday visual perception but also plays a significant role in reading and comprehension. It helps us to quickly recognize words or letters even if they are partially obscured. In the context of learning and development, difficulties with visual closure can impact reading efficiency, handwriting, and the ability to quickly grasp concepts from visual presentations.

Visual closure is a component of visual perceptual skills, which also include abilities like visual discrimination, figure-ground perception, and spatial relationships. These skills collectively enable us to interpret and interact with our visual environment effectively.
