TREATING VISION-RELATED READING & LEARNING PROBLEMS AT WOW VISION THERAPY
In education, vision is the dominant sensory system as 80% of learning is done through the visual system. Deficits within this system often decrease a student’s reading and learning abilities.1
DID YOU KNOW?
Even with 20/20 eyesight, several vision conditions can affect a child’s ability to read and learn. These vision conditions are not always obvious and often go undetected during school vision screenings. Left untreated, reading and learning often become difficult:
Test of a page may become blurry even drift apart, being double. Words may even move or jump around.
Students with a vision-related learning problem typically show signs of:
Problems with math
Poor reading abilities
Poor attention and concentration
Poor handwriting skills
Skipping lines while reading
Closing an eye while reading
Letter or number reversals
Slow at completing tasks
The most common vision conditions that affect learning are:
Visual Processing Disorder
Researchers from Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital found that “deficits in visual function are far more prevalent in school-aged children with developmental dyslexia than in typically developing readers.”2 These visual deficits are often treatable with vision therapy.
ADVANCED VISION THERAPY
Research shows, home-based treatment models are significantly less effective than office-based vision therapy paired with home reinforcement.3 At Wow Vision Therapy, our advanced office-based approach goes beyond basic at-home treatment. Our doctors and board certified vision therapists provide innovative vision therapy that incorporates coordinated movement, balance, auditory processing and cognitive skills. We also provide the most advanced technology including in-office and home-support virtual reality. This treatment model gives our patients the visual abilities they need to succeed in and outside of the classroom.
Our advanced vision therapy includes:
Visual processing development
Accommodation “focusing” development
Binocular vision therapy
Visual imagery therapy
Visual-motor integration development
Visual-vestibular integration development
Our patients report improvements in:
Reading and handwriting
Attention and concentration
1. Visual and binocular status in elementary school children with a reading problem (Christian et al., 2018)
2. Frequency of Visual Deficits in Children With Developmental Dyslexia (Raghuram et al., 2018)
3. Randomized Clinical Trial of Treatments for Symptomatic Convergence Insufficiency in Children (Scheiman et al., 2008)
