Visual Processing Disorder?

What type of therapy is there for Visual Processing??


-----------------------------------------------

There are a lot of programs and therapies out there for visual processing disorders. If you type "visual processing disorder" into a google search you will find some GREAT information (I did). Besides what they mention, SPD kids have had success with OT's and especially behavioral optometrists. You can read much more about all of this in my newsletter entitled Visual Processing Deficits; Often Misdiagnosed, Clearly "Visible". You will find MANY valuable resources in this newsletter as well.

Also, if you have a Nintendo DS, the Flash Focus; Vision Training game is a good one!! Nice easy therapy that's fun and can be done right at home. My daughter has it and it is helping her! Also, a program called Eye Q. It is a fun way to improve your visual processing skills.

suggestions for people with VPD
by: lakollas

There are many at home things you can do to help your child if you suspect they have Visual Processing Disorder (VPD). However, if you find a really good thorough opthamologist that specializes in visual processing disorder training that would be your best step. There are certain things that need to be done for your child that is based on your childs specific VPD. These things must be done correctly and in the right order. There are many steps. Nothing can teach you to do this at home. This is a serious disorder that needs to be dealt with correctly the first time. It's helped many that I know of. No, I'm not a doctor....just a mom. Do your child a favor and at least get them evaluated by a specialist. Typically, these initial evaluations are free of charge. The treatments aren't cheap and they typically don't accept insurance. You'll have to submit and get reimbursed from them. But you will be very happy you chose a professional. But make sure to get references and recommendations.

Could this be why my 5yr old still looks at books upsidedown?
