Symptoms Of Vision Deficiencies
"Children typically do not report poor vision, they assume everybody sees the way they do." -Dr. Joseph Lawless
Many children with difficulty learning, especially those with A.D.D, have an undiagnosed visual deficiency. The symptoms of a vision-related learning problem and A.D.D are similar. The Vision Improvement Program can diagnose and successfully treat most vision problems that are often reflected in the following behaviors:
- Unable to sit still, cannot stay on task for any length of time
- Very clumsy; poor eye-hand coordination
- Shows poor reading comprehension
- Does written work very slowly; often fails to complete a task
- Has difficulty copying visual material, constantly looks up and down
- Holds head very close, inclines head far to one side when reading
- Moves entire head instead of eyes when reading
- Just "not getting it"
- Is disorganized and frustrated when studying visual information
- Makes frequent "careless" errors
