Processing speed isn't a one-dimensional concept. It's not just about how fast received, or how fast we write or how fast we can process what we've heard. It's really a combination of all those factors. In fact, processing speed deficits can be observed in visual processing, verbal processing and motor speed. Problems in one or more of these areas can manifest and problems with academic fluency and general difficulties….In every day life there is a cost to processing everything more slowly. My interview with Dr. Braaten will take place over two sessions. Within the first, she will discuss some of the more common variables with processing speed weaknesses and in the second, she will discuss different aspects of how parents and teachers can approach children with processing speed weaknesses. Part I Dr. Ellen Braaten author of ?Bright Kids Who Can't Keep Up? discusses many of the signs and symptoms of children with ?processing speed? or sluggish cognitive tempo. Dr. Braaten highlights the many factors that can affect processing speed and what to watch for at home and in the classroom
