Children who are having trouble with their spatial awareness typically:
- Have difficulty with space-related concepts such as 'in', 'out', 'next to', 'above', 'under', 'in front of' and 'behind'
- Appear clumsy or awkward and bump into things
- Find sport and sport-related games tough
- Have trouble drawing and/or writing in proportion (e.g. using a consistent letter size and placing them on the line or drawing a person with a head that’s larger than the body)
- Have difficulty telling the difference between the letters 'b', 'd', 'p' and 'q'
- Draw their letters back to front (e.g. a ‘b’ that looks like a ‘d’)
- Lose their place on a page
