Dado Squares and Visual Spatial Learning
Visual Spatial Learning has captured the attention of scientists and educators as being highly valuable in child development. Visual Spatial Play refers to the ability to mentally picture things and is characterized by the ability to appreciate patterns & form in very large or small areas of space. Children with profuse Visual Spatial Intelligence can construct three-dimensional mental images and visual them from multiple perspectives. A keen eye for form, design, color, size, shape and space enables these gifted children to create realistic representations of real world images.
Dado Squares are Simple...Simple Design that Inspires Complex Thought
In Tom West's book, In the Mind's Eye, he suggests that in the 21st Century, strong visual skills will be crucial elements to success: "Ready recognition of larger patterns, intuition, a sense of proportion, imaginative vision, the original and unexpected approach, and the apt connection between apparently unrelated things...". Through Dado's simple shapes and intuitive system of construction, people of all ages find Dado engaging.
