Vision and learning go hand in hand. Over 70% of incoming sensory information is visual in nature, and 70-90% of classroom learning is visual.
Tracking and other visual problems are often not evaluated during testing for learning disabilities.
We use our vision to gather information and coordinate our bodies. This applies to everything from taking in information about our environment, recognizing objects and forms, coordinating our eyes while reading, determining exactly where to shoot a basketball, or even how to move a pencil through the shapes of letter. If there are skills lacking anywhere within this process it can create an unnecessary barrier that can result in lack of interest, poor performance, and even behavioral issues.
If your child is struggling at all in school, it is important to rule out underlying visual conditions. Call now to book (250) 590-7384.
