Form Constancy

What is Form Constancy?

It is the ability to see a form & find it among other forms, even if it may be sized different or rotated. Visual form constancy reflects a child's ability to recognize forms, letters, or words regardless of their orientation.

If your child struggles with this, you would notice that it would:

- make reading difficult as the child might not recognize familiar letters when presented in different fonts, sizes or colors.

- result in being slower to master the alphabet & numbers

- lead to difficulty recognizing errors

- cause confusion between "p, q, & g", "a & o", "b & d"

- make transitioning from printed to cursive letters difficult

- result in assuming the size of objects regardless of their distance

- make it hard for your child to look at things from an angle

- make it difficult for your kid to understand volumetric concepts (mass, amount, & quantity)

- make recognizing things that should be familiar when environmental conditions change more difficult

- reflect attention & focus, which makes it difficult to complete schoolwork
