Parent guide to vision therapy

In this parent guide to vision therapy, we look at some ways that you can tell whether your child might need vision therapy. Eighty percent of your child’s learning is based on what he or she sees, but good eyesight is only part of it. The brain and eyes must work together for effective learning.

Effective vision is a combination of how the eyes work, how they move as a team, how they coordinate with the hands and how quickly they focus at changing distances. Vision problems are often at the root of what appears to be a more serious learning difficulty.

Vision problems in children can often lead to

  • Misdiagnoses of a learning disability or ADHD
  • Poor self-esteem
  • Fatigue, frustration and irritability
  • Day dreaming
  • Short attention span
  • Poor grades
