What is the best way to improve processing speed in a student/child??? Also how does one know when a student/child has received/processed all the information taught at any specific moment??? What is the best way/method to teach a child with slow processing speed???

Thank You,

Best way - It depends on the reason for the processing speed deficit. Could be ADD, vision issues, temporal issues, etc.

How do you know if student processed all info. - You don't. Especially when they have other output difficulties.

What does the dr. who did the testing recommend?

If we rule out physical problems, such as visual deficits, how do you improve processing speed? Everyone talks about it, but I have yet to read how you remediate it. I have read quite a few reports by psychologists, and I have yet to read specific remediation recommendations.

I would love to hear any ideas. I have read about a few pricey programs, but I hesitate to buy something that doesn't have much research behind it.
