LearningRx Explains the Role of Visual Processing in Learning

August is National Eye Exam Month

​​August is Eye Exam Month, and while many parents are concerned about their child’s vision, there’s another optical function that plays a vital role in learning: visual processing.

That’s why LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com), the world’s largest personal brain training company, is using the celebration to explain the role that visual processing plays in learning.

“Visual processing enables you to think in visual images,” explains LearningRx CEO Kim Hanson. “When visual processing is weak, you may have difficulties understand what you’ve just read, remembering what you’ve just read or following directions or reading maps.”

Another example might be a student who struggles with math word problems that require visualization.

So how do you know if your visual processing skills are weak?

“At LearningRx, we offer a cognitive skills assessment that measures brain skills,” explains Hanson, who is also the co-author of “Unlock the Einstein Inside: Applying New Brain Science to Wake Up the Smart in Your Child.” “In addition to visual processing, our assessment can tell you if things like attention, working and long-term memory, processing speed, auditory processing and logic and reasoning are weak.”

If a cognitive skills assessment shows that visual processing and/or other brain skills are weak, LearningRx can create a personal brain training program to target and train those skills. Strong cognitive skills make learning faster and easier, no matter what the subject.
