A Visual Processing Workshop
Visual processing is important because it helps us to make sense of what we see. Weaknesses or deficits in any of the subtypes can make it difficult for learners to perceive and understand the visual world. Common difficulties include:
- trouble discriminating between similar-looking symbols, letters, and shapes.
- problems remembering what is seen.
- challenges recalling a series of images like a string of letters or numbers.
- trouble making sense of poorly printed copies.
- problems tracking one's eyes across a line of text or around a dense page.
- challenges making sense of visual information in space and the orientation of these objects.
- trouble finding an image when there are many overlapping images within the visual field.
- problems making fine and accurate motor movements such as tying a shoe or handwriting skills.
