A Surprising Way to Help Your Child Succeed
What if we told you that finding help for your child does not have to be frustrating, discouraging, or impossible? Vision therapy focuses not only on helping your child’s grades improve, but also on authentically equipping them to be able to cope and succeed with their learning problems.
Did you know that many children with functional vision problems go undiagnosed because it can even occur in children with 20/20 vision? It is estimated that 1 in 10 children have a vision problem severe enough to affect their learning in school, but school vision screenings can miss up to half of these problems.
Symptoms of functional vision problems include:
- Difficulty with reading and comprehension
- Reading below grade level standards
- Illegible handwriting
- Writing uphill or downhill
- Confusing words and letters
- Getting headaches
- Reluctance to participate in gym class or sports
We’ve put together a Free Online Assessment for you to see if your child has any signs of functional vision problems.
Vision therapy has been shown to increase the self-esteem of children. We are not just pushing for quantitative results – we understand the effects learning problems have on children’s self-image and we are determined to alleviate the insecurities that develop from under-performance.
In addition, improving visual skills can increase reading comprehension, making your child more confident. This also makes them less likely to have behavioral issues in school, as they will develop more of an eagerness and willingness to learn.
We work specifically on improving visual skills related to handwriting as well. Honing in on this motor skill enables the child to be comfortable with working on assignments in class and at home. This tends to decrease frustration both in school and at home.
