Visual Processing Skills

Visual processing skills are skills that are important to strengthen at a young age. Many children have a hard time reading and focusing yet have 20/20 vision. This is because their visual processing skills are poor. Kids who struggle with this skill have a difficult time reading, the words on the page begin to appear blurry and won't stay in focus often causing headaches. This affects a child's attention, can become frustrating and eventually effect a child's grades. Luckily it is easy to fix and can be worked on through practice and patience. Parents can find eye exercises and work on them with their children.

Here is an example of a practice exercise. They can be found online.
