Processing Speed, Rapid Naming, and Reading Problems

Processing Speed

Processing Speed is critical to how quickly we learn. It is one measure of cognitive proficiency. Processing speed envelops one’s ability to automatically take in information and process it quickly and fluently with easy, overlearned material or tasks.

Quick Processing Speed

For example, reading a list of words that you are familiar with quickly, fluently, and accurately.

Slow Processing Speed

Learning Disability? Dyslexia? Learning Difficulty?

Message from Bonnie Terry, M. Ed., BCET

As my first post as the Go To Pro for SpecialNeeds.com I want to give you a little bit of background into what a learning problem is. Many of you have struggling students or even struggle yourself with certain things, but that doesn’t mean you actually have a learning disability. So I want to give you some foundational information.
