Slow Processing Disorder

Updated: October 2014

Processing speed refers to how quickly a student can react to incoming information, understand it, think about the information, formulate a response, and execute that response. Speed of information processing is not the same as intelligence. It is possible to be very bright, yet process information slowly. Similarly, speed of information processing is not the same as physical quickness. It is possible to have complete physical recovery and yet process information slowly. Students with slow processing disorder may experience difficulty completing their school work on time, have trouble understanding and following through with instructions, and learning new material in general.

Testing for Slow Processing Disorder

Slow processing may be identified through a series of tests where cognitive skills such as attention, memory, problem solving, and executive functions are closely looked at. An IQ test and an individual achievement test is administered and every skill associated with these functions are analyzed as part of our comprehensive assessment to come to a proper diagnosis.   All testing is done in your own home by a licensed school psychologist. Parents will receive a comprehensive, customized and detailed report describing your child's strengths and weaknesses, not just a computer print out. Child Testing Solutions serves all of Florida counties and cities, including: the entire Tampa Bay area, Orlando, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Panama City, Miami, Ft. lauderdale, West Palm, Boca Raton and many more. Please call for more details. 


Treatment


There is no specific training program designed to improve processing speed across all domains. However, our report will include a series of recommendations for parents and teachers directed at addressing co-existing problems that may be making the processing speed worse or teaching the student and his family to advocate for himself, as well as allowing extra time to complete tasks. Students who process information slowly and work slowly need more time. They should be encouraged to create a habit of starting assignments and projects early so that they do not get rushed to complete the task in time
