Visual Perception or visual processing is the process by which your brain interprets images that your eyes observe. Some aspects of visual perception are awareness, reasoning and judgment.

Visual Processing Disorders Visual processing disorders are a reduced ability to properly process information observed by the eye, directly affecting the manner in which the brain interprets and processes that information. Indicators of visual perceptual deficits include short attention span, delayed motor perceptual ability, and high frustration levels..

Visual-motor integration is the ability to use visual cues to direct one's movements. This includes both fine motor and gross motor skills. Visual processing disorders can cause visual motor integration difficulties for some people. They may have problems orienting themselves in space, particularly in relation to other people and objects. These people are often referred to as 'clumsy' because they tend to bump into things, or place objects near table edges where they can easily fall off. Deficient visual motor integration can affect almost every aspect of a person's life including social, professional, academic, and athletic.
