Interesting Article on Visual Pattern Recognition and Language

Renowned vision scientist Janette Atkinson has quoted that both in research and in clinical settings, it is both difficult and increasing impractical to separate vision, vision-motor, and motor functions as these elements do not occur in neat little boxes in isolation in “brain” function.  There is a similarity here to what we see clinically where children who have difficulty recognising visual patterns, often have similar pattern recognition difficulties in language and movement. This often requires a multi-disciplinary approach to helping the patient achieve their goals.

Other researchers have also considered that there may be a link between vision and language.  All of this certainly fits with the idea that the use of our senses does not develop in isolation with one an another, making it difficult to tease out cause vs effect.–+ScienceDaily%29
