Dyslexic children are typically very bright, yet they fail at something most children can easily accomplish, learning to read. Here are some reasons why a child fails to read or is a poor reader.
Vision therapy does not teach a child to read. Vision therapy treats visual conditions that interfere with reading. If your child is behind in reading, or you suspect, or have been told she or he has dyslexia, schedule an exam today. Dr. Marran O.D. Ph.D will rule out a visual condition that could be causing or contributing to poor reading.
Though there is no age restriction for treatment, it is important to realize that the earlier patients can be treated, the more vision therapy makes an impact in academic performance because the longer a person goes without treatment, the farther they get behind in school, the lower their self-esteem and the longer it takes to change poor learning habits or compensations.

“I have seen so much growth in Kayla. She appears much less frustrated and seems more able to cope with frustrating situations. Last year she could not connect the dots to make a triangle to now being able to draw and microscope and it's parts from the board. She enjoys reading now and is doing adult connect the dot books. We used to spend hours on homework which was often not done correctly--to going to school all day and then math tutoring for an hour with no problems. She still struggles with reading and spelling, but on her last report card got all A's and 1B. She feels that the vision therapy has helped her be more successful in life (softball, school, etc). My personnel feeling is that Kayla's vision problems created a feeling of chaos or loss of control---she struggled with trying to control her life in a chaotic situation. Now she can make sense of the world visually, she is less angry, less stressed and feels more successful in life. Thank you for everything!”
