Vision - The Hidden Learning Disability

Good readers NEED good eye sight. Reading is a complex skill, but all good readers start with good visual skills to accurately see and process the visual information from the page.

When children have trouble reading, parents and teachers need to discover the root of the problem. One of the most common and most overlooked reading problems is a child's visual skills. 1-in-4 students have a vision-related learning problem that interferes with reading and learning. 

Many students who are struggling to read because of a vision-related learning problem may pass their school screening! Typical eye exams or school screenings only test for 20/20 acuity (i.e., the ability to see objects far away). However, reading requires the use of over 17 other visual  skills! 

Over 80% of classroom learning is estimated to be visual. Some children diagnosed with ADHD and other learning disorders may simply have a visual disorder that makes school frustrating, reading uncomfortable, and concentrating difficult.   Don't let your child struggle to learn because of a hidden vision problem. Contact us and learn more about testing and vision therapy.
