In abstract thinking, children learn to engage in problem solving or truly "thinking" about their world. It allows a child to develop ways to classify objects and experiences. It also allows a child to begin to deal with concepts that are not immediately present in their world.
Development of abstract thinking skills is a critical factor in ensuring academic success, as well as in dealing with the complexities of life. Children with visual impairments, both ocular and brain-based, often have difficulties in developing these skills in abstract thinking without specific educational interventions.
