1 out 4 kids struggle with functional vision
Children use their visual system for 80% of classroom learning.
They also use it for sports, homework, reading, and just about everything we do. If something’s wrong with our visual system, everything seems wrong. Most the time, kids don't complain about what they see because they've always seen it that way...
You can have 20/20 vision and still suffer from functional vision problems. That’s why so many functional vision problems go undiagnosed. This isn’t simply about reading the letters on the board. It’s about distinguishing between a “b” and a “d”, finding the next line on a page, putting the correct piece in the puzzle, or hitting a moving ball.
And it’s about overcoming or preventing a lifetime of struggles.

Specially-trained occupational therapist screens to discover visual problems affecting
learning and coordination. Even if they see clearly, you need to have this done!
We recommend a visit to the eye doctor put all the pieces together!
Then the eyeOT program pinpoints their coordination + visual processing challenges through specialized occupational therapy testing.
