Visual and Auditory Processing Disorders

Visual and Auditory Processing Disorders
By: National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) (1999) Introduction Visual and auditory processing are the processes of recognizing and interpreting information taken in through the senses of sight and sound. The terms, "visual and auditory processing" and "visual and auditory perception", are often used interchangeably. Although there are many types of perception, the two most common areas of difficulty involved with a learning disability are visual and auditory perception. Since so much information in the classroom and at home is presented visually and/or verbally, the child with an auditory or visual perceptual disorder can be at a disadvantage in certain situations. For the sake of consistency, the terms used in this packet are visual processing disorder and auditory processing disorder. Visual processing disorder What is it? A visual processing, or perceptual, disorder refers to a hindered ability to make sense of information taken in through the eyes. Visual discrimination

Visual Impairment Listen The human eye is like a camera that collects, focuses, and transmits light through a lens to create an image of its surroundings. In a camera, the image is created on film or an image sensor. In the eye, the image is created on the retina, a thin layer of light-sensitive tissue at the back of the eye. Like a camera, the human eye controls the amount of light that enters the eye. The iris (the colored circular part of the eye) controls the amount of light passing through the pupil. What is a gifted child? Written by David Farmer Wednesday, 12 December 2007 07:11 A good question to start with. The word "gifted" has been defined differently by different academics and practitioners and is often considered by many to be an unfortunate term, but it has become generally associated with a child whose potential in one or more areas of skill would place him or her in the top 2-5% of children of the same age. Notice that this does not assume a narrow view of academic intelligence - the areas of skill can be traditionally academic, or creative, intrapersonal etc. You can read the following general introduction or check out these pages which cover the main different models of giftedness:

What Are Classrooms Like for Students with Learning Disabilities? How do general education classroom environments respond to individual differences and needs? How readily do teachers alter their forms of classroom organization; how readily do they modify approaches? Common classroom conditions can and do affect many students adversely-to some degree, at one time or another, in one way or other-but, some students are especiallyvulnerable to classrooms' hazards (e.g., children of poverty, nonnative speakers, those with attention deficits). Students with learning disabilities are among the mostvulnerable-at chronic risk for "not learning" under the aforementioned conditions, for long-term academic and social problems, and for lifelong debilitating side-effects of their classroom experiences. Classrooms can be perilous in a number of ways for students with learning disabilities.

Sensory Motor Integration Sensory motor integration refers to a relationship between the sensory system (nerves) and the motor system (muscles). Also, it refers to the process by which these two systems (sensory and motor) communicate and coordinate with each other. Sensory motor integration skills are developed during the period of growth from birth to about age 7. During these years, the child mainly senses things and then moves his body in relation to those sensations. His growth in all other mental and social functions will be based upon this foundation of sensory-motor integration. In the process of developing sensory motor integration a child first learns to move and then he learns through movement.

A Parent's Perspective — Tools for the High School Student with LD Our daughter Hillary was in the fifth grade when she was originally diagnosed with a language disability. It wasn't until she was a freshman in high school that her disability was given a name: Aphasia. Hillary's Aphasia is both expressive and receptive, meaning that reading, writing, processing information and speaking are all more laborious tasks for her than for other students. At the time of the diagnosis, doctors told us that college was an unrealistic aspiration for Hillary. Hillary's strong work ethic got her through two difficult years of junior high school.

multiple intelligences - howard gardners multiple intelligences theory - visual auditory kinesthetic learnings styles VAK model multiple intelligences theory Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence Theory was first published in Howard Gardner's book, Frames Of Mind (1983), and quickly became established as a classical model by which to understand and teach many aspects of human intelligence, learning style, personality and behaviour - in education and industry. Howard Gardner initially developed his ideas and theory on multiple intelligences as a contribution to psychology, however Gardner's theory was soon embraced by education, teaching and training communities, for whom the appeal was immediate and irresistible - a sure sign that Gardner had created a classic reference work and learning model.

As an adult it's up to you to make sure your rights are being respected and that the accommodations you need are available to you. Whether at school or at work, being an advocate for yourself means understanding your rights, understanding how you work best and working with others to ensure that your special needs are met.

Auditory Or Visual Processing Children who have Sensory Processing Disorder will almost always have, to various degrees, some level of auditory or visual processing deficits. No child is born with perfect auditory processing. This is a learned, developed and acquired skill. They also are not born with perfect visual processing.
