... homework is not a battle game any more.[More]

He can read! ... Temper tantrums have decreased significantly![More]

... he says he can keep up with his teacher better because he can see better... I think his attitude changed because he is not so frustrated and he can now keep up.[More]

She can now do her reading without throwing a fit. I wish we'd done Vision Therapy sooner.[More]

he doesn't get upset about doing homework at night anymore. ...Before completing Vision Therapy, he would fall to the ground during that exercise and say he "couldn't do it." [More]

Last school year she yelled, screamed and cried when she had to read. ... she had all Cs and Ds, which she worked very hard to get. Since VT, she is now getting all As and Bs.[More]

... her homework became a struggle in 2nd grade. Her frustration levels (usually manifested at home) were very high. She was angry with her parents.[More]

From kindergarten on, Evan showed signs of stress upon departing for school (crying, kicking the back of the car seats, irrationality). This behavior also occurred whenever we worked on homework together.[More]

... he doesn't cry through his writing homework like he used to. [ More]

Our home life was not the best at times. When Caitlin came home from school, we butted heads everyday about doing homework for at least 1 to 2 hours a day. Then when she did finally do it, it took her one and a half hours, and that was with our help. Now it's like a completely different person coming home. She loves to read now and is getting A's and B's in school. All her grades have improved since we've been in Vision Therapy.

Before we started Vision Therapy, Andrew detested doing homework. His step-father and I would have to argue with him daily. After Vision Therapy, he seems more in tune with what he is doing and homework is not a battle game any more. He still gets stumped every now and then, but he doesnŪt get as frustrated as he used to. Vision Therapy has got him going in the right direction.

Since Vision Therapy, my son is able to read without making up words. He can read! In the past, he would never read the newspaper, directions, or signs. He does now! His spelling has improved significantly. He would avoid the computer, now he doesn't. He plays catch now, and before he wouldn't. Temper tantrums have decreased significantly!

Since Joel began Vision Therapy, we can see that his behavior is improving in school. Along with this, he says he can keep up with his teacher better because he can see better with his glasses. We used to get a bad report from the teacher approximately 1-2 times a week. I think his attitude changed because he is not so frustrated and he can now keep up. Reading has become easier for him.

Tracey had struggled with her reading and homework through kindergarten and 1st grade, and it was getting worse in 2nd grade. When the fits started, I knew there was a real problem. She had never thrown a fit before. Tracey's self-esteem was going quickly. If something didn't change, she would never complete school or be able to attend college.

She has been in Vision Therapy for 5 months. She can now do her reading without throwing a fit. She still has to try a little harder than others to make up for lost time, but at least now she can do the reading. I wish we'd done Vision Therapy sooner.

Since Vision Therapy, Zach's (age 7) handwriting and spelling continue to improve. He now gets 90-100% on spelling tests. His concentration is better and he doesn't get upset about doing homework at night anymore. He also reports that changing focus back and forth when reading something held in his hand and then up on the wall is "easy." Before completing Vision Therapy, he would fall to the ground during that exercise and say he "couldn't do it."

Vision Therapy has helped to give Tiffany confidence in herself. Before VT, she had a very hard time reading. What she read, she did not comprehend. It took us three hours every night to do simple school work.

Last year in 4th grade, she had all Cs and Ds, which she worked very hard to get. Since VT, she is now getting all As and Bs, and she very seldom brings home any school work at all. Last school year she yelled, screamed and cried when she had to read. Now she really enjoys reading and is bringing books home all the time.

Tiffany's teacher says it's like night and day; the difference in her comprehension has made our lives a whole lot easier. Thanks to Vision Therapy, Tiffany now has confidence and motivation to learn.
