Spatial Orientation Labyrinths
Cognitive training

Cognitive training of spatial orientation and visuo-spatial skills, using Labyrinth tasks, helps to develop planning and anticipation skills, given that a labyrinth involves simple problem-solving skills. The exercises also involve visuo-spatial coordination skills and aim to establish lateral and horizontal movement automatisms.

Target Clientele

Children and adults (6 years and older) who:

NOTE: May be used by anyone as a simple cognitive training activity.

Target Skills

Mode: Visual
Principal skill(s) targeted: Planning and problem-solving
