We initiated Vision Therapy for Alli due to her frustrations with reading. Although her decoding skills were intact, Alli struggled with reading speed and tired easily. As a result, she hated reading and resisted this important activity. We have experienced this frustration since 1st grade. Testing and reading support had not garnered any insight or progress.
Before coming to Vision Therapy, my son Daniel had numerous problems at school. He was a very slow reader and had great difficulty copying from the board. Going into 5th grade was a challenge. He now had more reading to do and an assignment book to copy assignments from the board. He was unable to complete his book on a daily basis and his teacher had to complete it for him. By the end of the first week of school, he was very frustrated.
When we first started Vision Therapy, Sarah was an eager student but easily frustrated. It took her an extremely long time to complete assignments. Written directions were confusing, and to read a book was a slow process due to inadequate reading comprehension abilities.
Lacey is a very bright student having few errors in her schoolwork. However, it would take Lacey forever to do her work (including her reading) and she would complain of headaches, fuzziness and tired eyes. Since Vision Therapy, Lacey no longer has headaches and fuzziness and tired eyes. I've been very thankful that Lacey received Vision Therapy.
Matthew has shown very pronounced improvement in his reading. His decoding and processing skills are quicker. Directionality has improved. His mistakes with letter reversals have decreased.
First of all, I want to thank Vision Therapy for helping my daughter Brittany.
Before Caitlin began Vision Therapy, she had no self-esteem or pride in anything she accomplished and achieved. She had difficulty concentrating and staying focused on the tasks confronting her. She also had a huge problem with performing assignments too slowly.
Before we took our daughter to Vision Therapy, she was doing poorly in school. Her self-esteem was low, and she didn't read very well. Now she is doing much better in school. Before, she would take hours to do her homework. Now, she sits down for homework and gets it done right away. She seems to concentrate better on everything that she does. We are very pleased and thankful that we were able to find and treat the problem.
Jackie is more confident at school. Her reading fluency has increased. She is able to read aloud in front of others without feeling self-conscious and will even volunteer to read. Her visual memory has improved.
