Visual kids learn by watching and imitating you [his father, and everyone else he plays with]. They enjoy organizing their toys by shape, color, or size, [see picture example below] and tend to learn to read easily. Too much visual input from TVs, crowds, and clutter can be distracting.
As Babies: Visual infants often get labeled "good babies" because it's easy to meet their needs. All that these babies need to feel secure and comforted is to be able to see their parent or caregiver nearby.
As Toddlers: Tantrums for these kids are very dramatic, with vivid expressions and copious tears [just to paint a picture for you on my less favorable days]. Offer a visual distraction, such as a brightly colored toy. Or just look away - he hates being deprived of an audience.
As Preschoolers: These tots get bored if they can't see what they're learning; think picture books, flash cards, and drawing on a chalkboard.
Isn't it great that we have so many resources out there these days to better understand these little people. Even the smallest of information and ideas can be helpful, and I love Priscilla Dunstan. She sure made my first time early motherhood easier with "Dunstan Baby Language". I'm going to need a refresher course soon.
