Learning Disorders

What Are Learning Disorders and How Do They Affect Me?

Vision can be a contributing factor to the difficulty patients have when they are diagnosed with learning disorders. 1 in 10 children have a vision problem significant enough that it impacts their learning. Difficulty with attention and concentration can be more than just a diagnoses.

The visual system is more than how clearly we can see, but how well we are able to comprehend, retain, and recall information we take in. Most symptoms that deal with ADHD and ADD overlap with visual processing dysfunction symptoms. Difficulty sitting and reading due to words doubling, moving, and not being clear can be a sign that the visual system is unbalanced. Tilting your head from side to side, covering one eye, holding reading materials close to the face, and avoiding reading and other close activities can all be signs of visual system dysfunction that are also closely associated with a learning disorder.

How Can We Help?

Our brain’s continue to learn and create neuro-pathways up until the day we pass, so learning new techniques to improve our daily lives while dealing with a learning disability shouldn’t feel impossible. Our customized rehabilitation program helps patients regain confidence in their space, reduce symptoms, and teaches visual strategies for daily living! We believe that everyone is capable of empowering themselves with the knowledge and skills to improve their daily life and reduce symptoms.

Test We Run

RightEye - A 5 minute ocular movement test that uses infrared light to track eye movement and tests baselines for vision tracking, eye-teaming, eye-hand coordination, and other visual tracking impairments.

Functional Visual Field - This test provides a quick and efficient view of the functional visual color fields. These show us the relationship between the visual system, the body, and the how much space one is able to process and interact with at one time.
