Classroom Accommodations for Visual Processing Issues
When students have difficulty processing visual information, it can get in the way of learning. What
can teachers use in the classroom to help students with
? Here’s a look at some strategies and tools.
Classroom Materials and Routines
Post visual schedules, but also say them out loud.
Describe visual presentations aloud and/or provide narration.
Build in time to summarize the important information from each lesson.
Provide uncluttered handouts with few or no nonessential images.
Use a reading guide strip or a blank index card to block out other lines of text while reading.
Provide a highlighter to use to highlight information while reading.
Provide a slant board (or three-ring binder) to bring work closer to student’s visual field.
