Visual and auditory processing are the processes of recognizing and interpreting information taken in through the senses of sight and sound. A visual processing or perceptual disorder refers to a hindered ability to make sense of information taken in through the eyes.

This is different from problems involving sight or sharpness of vision. Difficulties with visual processing affect how visual information is interpreted or processed by the brain.
