Visual Processing Disorder

The National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) defines visual processing disorder as a hindered ability to make sense of information taken in through the eyes. This is different from problems involving sight or sharpness of vision. Difficulties with visual processing affect how visual information is interpreted, or processed by the brain.

Here are ways to support students with visual processing disorder:

  • Provide enlarged print for books, papers, worksheets, or other written assignments.
  • Provide paper with raised lines.
  • Simplify graphic organizers so students are not overwhelmed with visual information on one page.
