Visual processing is how the brain interprets and makes sense of information received from the eyes. It involves a complex series of cognitive steps that enable us to perceive, recognize, and interpret visual information. Visual processing encompasses vital skills for early literacy because it is closely related to the foundational skills that students require to read, write, think, and interact with others.
Visual processing is important for early literacy because it is closely related to the foundational skills that enable children to compute math, read, and write. Weaknesses or deficits in any of the subtypes of visual processing can make it difficult for learners to perceive and understand the visual world. Common difficulties that can interrupt the learning process include:
- trouble discriminating between similar symbols, letters, and shapes.
- problems recalling what is seen.
- challenges recalling a sequence 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 3D information and the changing orientation of 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.
Clearly, learning how to strengthen visual processing skills can help teachers create a strong cognitive foundation for successful learning in the classroom and beyond.
