Recently, there has been a positive trend towards an increase in children with learning difficulties. Visual-spatial functions underlie the formation of higher mental functions, including emotional life. The lack of formation of spatial representations inevitably leads to a significant violation of cognitive operations and visual thought processes necessary for the successful mastering of the school curriculum. 

The study of spatial representations in children of primary school age showed that children with learning difficulties are characterized by such disorders as reversion and perspective defects, dysmetry, difficulties in rendering three-dimensionality, planar images, fragmentation of the perceptual image, fragmented and chaotic strategies of optical-spatial activity.
