Vision Therapy For Students

Vision therapy can benefit people of all ages, including children. Vision is affected during all stages of development, and adaptations can occur if the child does not develop properly. Vision therapy can benefit children with learning and reading related vision problems, lazy eyes (amblyopia), and eye turns (strabismus), as well as children belonging to special populations.

Vision can affect your child’s academic environment. 80% of all learning in a classroom is visual, and 1 in 4 children struggle with learning because of their vision. Children with vision problems have to work much harder than their peers to accomplish homework, reading, and writing tasks. Vision can also affect your child’s performance in sports, their self-esteem, and can cause attention issues!

Vision therapy is not a direct treatment for learning disabilities, or a replacement for tutoring, special help, or IEPs. However, research tells us that vision therapy can be a successful tool used to help with these modalities. Vision therapy exercises will train the eyes to work together as a team, and strengthen the interaction between the eyes and the brain so children can enjoy learning and have fun!

“Sending your child to school with vision problems is like going to work without the resources to do your job”

Dr. Lynn Hellerstein, See It. Say It. Do It.

During our Parent / Teacher review at the end of November, Jacob’s teacher was telling us that she sees so many parents who don’t commit to vision training (we were actually the first in our school), but now they have Jacob’s results as an example of just how important vision training can be to a child’s improvement and confidence in school. She was so moved by how proud she is of Jacob that she started to cry, then I started to cry. The fact is, we couldn’t do it without you and the work that your office does in this regard.

Daniel is an 8 year old boy who came to the office for a yearly eye exam. During the exam, his behavioural optometrist noticed that his eyes were not working well together as a team. His parents mentioned that his writing had always been messy, and has always struggled with paying attention in the classroom. Being an active and energetic boy, his parents thought this was normal for his age. Daniel was booked for a specialized Vision and Learning assessment which showed that he had convergence excess, poor tracking for reading, decreased peripheral vision, and accommodative dysfunctions. The behavioural optometrist recommended a vision training program which would help increase all of his visual abilities. His parents could not believe the changes that took place while doing vision training. Daniel’s writing was not only legible for the first time in his life, but he was reading and comprehending faster than he ever had! He no longer struggled to keep up with homework. Engaging in a vision training program changed Daniel’s life for the better.
