Did you know that 20/20 vision is just one of over 17 crucial visual skills required for efficient performance in school and sports?

At The Vision Development Team, we offer a comprehensive vision therapy program that targets specific visual skills impacting your child’s learning and overall performance. Our evidence-based approach enhances reading levels, comprehension, attention spans, and sports abilities.

Struggling With Reading

If your child frequently has difficulty reading, such as skipping words or lines, it could indicate underlying visual skill challenges. Vision therapy addresses these issues, allowing your child to improve their reading abilities and develop better reading fluency over time.

Experiencing Eye Strain or Headaches During Close Work

Regular complaints about eye strain or headaches during activities like reading or computer work suggest that your child is experiencing visual discomfort. Vision therapy can help alleviate these symptoms by training the eyes to work more efficiently and comfortably during close-up tasks.

Demonstrating Avoidance Behaviors

If your child consistently displays avoidance behaviors related to tasks that require visual focus, such as resisting homework or fidgeting while reading, it could be a sign of potential visual challenges. Vision therapy can improve concentration and engagement in such tasks comfortably and without stress.

Confusing Letters

Difficulty distinguishing between certain letters, such as 'b,' 'd,' 'p,' and 'q,' could indicate visual processing issues. Vision therapy can help enhance your child's ability to recognize and differentiate letters, improving their reading and comprehension skills.

Eye Rubbing

Frequent rubbing of the eyes might be a sign of visual discomfort or strain, especially during activities that require visual concentration. Vision therapy addresses any underlying issues causing this discomfort and promotes healthier visual habits and behaviors.

Blurred Vision While Reading

If your child often complains of blurred or double vision while reading, it could indicate visual challenges that we should address. Vision therapy can help enhance their visual skills, enabling them to read more comfortably and with improved clarity.
