For Parents, Therapist, Educators and Other Professionals.  You are aware that a great amount of learning that occurs in the classroom and at home is dependant upon VISION.  Reading, writing, computer education, spelling and whiteboard demonstrations are part of most children's school day.  All of these learning situations require a child to use vision to process printed matter into meaningful information.

In your role, you stand in a unique position to observe your child/children as they are engaged in a variety of visual activites.  You may be the key to identifying possible vision problems, which is the first step in helping a child who suffers from inadequate visual skills.  Here are some signs/symptoms that a child may be at risk of having vision related learning difficulties.

  • holding a book very close to their face
  • turning head to use only one eye
  • covering or closing one eye while reading
  • squinting for either near or far vision tasks

  • double or blurred vision
  • handwriting is difficult to read, crowded or inconsistant in size
  • excessive blinking ot watering eyes

  • poor eye/hand coordination

What is Vision Therapy?

How well a person can see isn't just limited to whether or not they need glasses. It also involves a multitude of connections between the eyes and various parts of the brain. If those connections are weak or improperly wired then it can cause just as much (if not more) destruction to an individual's visual performance. This is where Vision Therapy comes into the equation.
