How to Use Your Resource Library 

This resource library offers a wide selection of creative activities (over 500) that exercise visual processing skills. It is a comprehensive bank of visual perception activities that can be used in online or in-person sessions with children through adults as a therapy source. 

What is Visual Processing?

Visual processing is a cognitive skill that takes place in the visual cortex and other regions of the brain. This allows us to process, interpret, and create meaning from visual images. It is how we make sense of what we see. 

Visual processing is vital because it plays a key role in learning from visual information in our environment.  By exercising visual perception one can establish good visual discrimination skills, improve the perception of subtle differences in similar objects or shapes, and develop matching skills, to name a few. It is a fundamental skill in the areas of reading, math, spelling, as well as other subject-based areas.  

Before Commencing with This Resource: 

Rule out that the problem (child struggles) is not an issue of vision by consulting with your pediatrician or optometrist. If vision is normal, then these resources can help to exercise and strengthen visual processing as well as tracking and processing speed.

Directions:

For the Administrator:

It is common for individuals to look away from the material when they are thinking. Therefore, remind them to keep their eyes on the screen, so that they can compare what they perceive to what is seen. In fact, kids and even adults can use a finger to help them track the lines of text, and pictures across the page - if needed.

Preparation:

  • Print out the downloadable Growth Tracker in Module 2.  This will help you keep track of the activities that the student has completed.

For the student:

  • Instruct the student: "We will be completing some fun, visual puzzles. These game-like activities will help you strengthen your visual processing ability and can make learning easier. Visual processing is not what we see, but how our brain makes sense of what we see."
  • This helps set the stage for a playful interaction. It also explains to the learners why they are doing the activities. This will help ignite motivation.
