Visual Processing Disorders

by Ian Jordan

In addition to the other sensory processing disorders there are a number of visual processing difficulties that need to be considered.

These include sensitivity to light (hue saturation and brightness), flicker (modulation and frequency), reflectance and remittance. In addition time and space mapping of the sensory systems require integration with the visual system being critical.

Synesthesia and cross sensory stimulus are common in SPD - visual processing effects can be dramatic. Sadly they are rarely undertaken.

Clinical visual processing management is now possible - and is complementary to OT / SLT / medical interventions.

Interventions are available in the UK through the NHS
