Visual Processing Disorder WORKSHOP Works Cited What does it look like? Auditory processing disorder (APD), also known as central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), is a complex problem affecting about 5% of school-aged children. These kids can't process the information they hear in the same way as others because their ears and brain don't fully coordinate. What does it look like? A visual processing, or perceptual, disorder refers to a hindered ability to make sense of information taken in through the eyes. This is different from problems involving sight or sharpness of vision. Difficulties with visual processing affect how visual information is interpreted, or processed by the brain how to detect

Is abstract information difficult for your child to comprehend? Tendency to move their whole head to read instead of just their eyes
