Occupational Therapy -> Sensory -> Visual

Visual

Visual sensory processing is the way in which we take in and interpret what we see. Examples of visual processing challenges include the following examples: difficulty focusing on important information in a busy environment, difficulty understanding/following written or visual instructions, failing to notice important information when driving (I.e., red vs green light), and becoming overwhelmed or dysregulated with bright lighting.
