Given the robust nature of learning sciences research, this website is best viewed on tablets and computers. A small screen experience is coming in the future.
Hover to see how factors connect to Visual Processing. Then click connected factors to explore strategies related to multiple factors.
Visual Processing allows us to understand what we see and is essential for reading and writing. Visual Processing skills help students recognize and order visual information, allowing them to develop into quick, accurate readers and writers.
Difficulties with Visual Processing can occur even when a student has good Vision. Visual Processing impacts reading and writing development in multiple ways:
Audiobooks allow students to hear fluent reading and to experience books above their reading skills.
Daily review strengthens previous learning and can lead to fluent recall.
When students explain their thinking process aloud, they recognize the strategies they use and solidify their understanding.
In guided inquiry, teachers help students use their own language for constructing knowledge by active listening and questioning.
Spending time with new content helps move concepts and ideas into Long-term Memory.
Practicing until achieving several error-free attempts is critical for retention.
By talking through their thinking at each step of a process, teachers can model what learning looks like.
Through one-on-one conferences, teachers can provide individual support to each student to deepen comprehension and interest in reading.
Books for vision differences support reading development for learners with visual needs.
Providing tools so learners can choose to listen to a text supports individual strengths and needs.
Spaces that are structured, organized, and clean provide increased room for collaboration and active learning.
Having students verbally repeat information such as instructions ensures they have heard the information and supports remembering.
Visual supports, like text magnification, colored overlays, and guided reading strips, help students focus and properly track as they read.
Writing conferences allow students to share, reflect on, and receive feedback about their writing, which promotes Motivation for revising.
