Visual Flash Digit Cards
Visual Flash Digits cards create an activity to work at a higher level than just digit spans for the important skill of visual short term memory (VSTM). VSTM is a memory system that brings in visual information for a few seconds and then uses it for thinking tasks. This activity, done twice a day for two minutes, works to expand the child’s visual VSTM by short, fun, intense sessions of visual memory practice. This important skill enhances the ability to hold expanded amounts of visual information to carry on cognitive thought and be stored in long-term memory. It also helps secure the order of symbols and words which is essential to reading i.e. “on” vs “no”. Each set contains 20 sturdy slick cards for easy manipulation. The activity can be used for individuals 7 years old or older. Instructions included.
