If you have a child that struggles with reading or completing their homework, they may suffer from an underlying vision issue. Your child may also prefer being read to instead of reading on their own if they have an inefficient visual system.
Additionally, your child may experience headaches, eye strain or skipping small words when reading.
You may also notice your child having difficulty with eye-hand coordination activities, such as catching and kicking a ball, drawing and handwriting, or a tendency to be more clumsy than his/her peers.
These could all be signs of an underlying issue with your child’s visual system.
Neuro-optometric rehabilitation is a therapeutic program consisting of specialized activities used to strengthen the connection between the brain and our visual system. Treatment plans are carried out by specially trained developmental optometrists and vision therapists. The overall goal is to improve an individual’s efficiency and control of their visual system for greater success in everyday activities such as reading, writing, and participating in sports/hobbies.
