Visual Perspective and spatial visualization
Cognitive training

Visual perspective : This cognitive training proposes tasks that require analysis of spatial relationships among objects within a given environment (for example a city), spatial visualisation, and manipulation of visual information. The element that increases the cognitive demand in this case is the fact that the client must adopt another person's perspective. The program also places emphasis on the development of topographic schemas that are useful in everyday movements between places.
