After vision therapy, his mother noticed many positive results including academic changes: “His attitude & confidence is 100% better. He is doing much better! This is the 1st year he made his reading levels before the end of the school year.”
“She can’t put the books down!”
HF was an 8 year old girl who had difficulty maintaining clear vision and distinguishing letters appropriately. She was diagnosed with amblyopia, so even with the glasses, she did not see well.
Her mother said, “She had really struggled with reading. She was well below grade level and reversing many letters, numbers and whole words with her writing and reading. Post vision therapy, she is a different child! When all is quiet and I go to “check” on her she is nearly always reading! She can’t put the books down! She now reads a chapter book (or 2) a day!”
“Yes!! Yes!! Yes!!”
HS was an 8 year old girl who had difficulty viewing close work such as reading and writing, because it is was more difficult for her eyes to move and focus than would be expected at her age. She was diagnosed with the visual focusing problems of Accommodative Insufficiency and eye movement problems of Oculomotor Dysfunction of Pursuits and Saccades.
When asked if HS showed behavior changes after vision therapy her parents said, “Yes!! Yes!! Yes!! Before therapy, HS was angry and quick to react negatively to all situations. She was also struggling w/relationships at school because she was constantly being called out for her bad behavior. This constant negative reinforcement made her feel inadequate among her classmates.”
