Navigation and wayfinding
Navigation, also referred to as an extrinsic spatial skill, is a subdomain of spatial reasoning. Wayfinding is an aspect of navigation which refers to the ability to use navigation skills to find your way from A to B. For people with learning difficulties, wayfinding ability has a significant impact on daily life and independence. We investigate navigation and wayfinding in typically developing children and individuals with learning difficulty to better understand these skills, the impact of these skills on other domains, and to find ways to overcome difficulties with navigating.
