From the mother of a 9 year old patient
Our son had a hard time with tracking, letter reversing, along with not enjoying reading. We took him to a developmental optometrist and he had his eyes tested various ways to see if what was wrong could be helped through therapy.
Within a short time of the initial visit, our son started vision therapy sessions. We were given home activities to be worked on daily and then would regroup with the therapist. The appointments and home activities were so personal and were geared to what he needed. Most of the activities he did at home were fun and he did with little complaining.
We saw significant improvement within weeks. He started raising his hand more in class and volunteered for out loud reading assignments. Our son’s confidence rose and he was much happier at home and school.
Towards the end of the school year, our son was recognized by the school principle for most improved in his grade. Before that he had never received any recognition. This school year, he has continued to grow and develop and we’re so thankful for the vision therapist who worked with him last year.
