Vision Problems that Interfere with School
Vision problems can make it more difficult for children to read, learn, remain on task and succeed in school, it is important for parents to be fully informed about their children's vision. Vision is more than just 20/20 many visiual skills are required to be able to read comfortably and clearly and these include eye tracking, eye teaming and focusing. Over 17 visual skills are required to read and seeing 20/20 is just one of them! One in four children lacks one or more of the basic visual skills required to read and that number jumps to 80% for children who are having problems reading. These kids often get diagnosed with ADHD and dyslexia but there may be a hidden visual problem. Call to book an evaluation!
