His greatest benefit is behavior related!
The two most dramatic changes that I have seen in JT since beginning vision therapy concern his behavior and his reading. JT’s frustration level was very high because his scores ranged from that of a very young child to 18+ years. He is 8. He knew he ought to have certain skills that he did not. Therefore, his frustration looked like – well – temper tantrums. I was at a loss. At the same time, he had difficulty reading and spelling. While his math skills are well above grade level, his difficulty understanding written directions on math work began to impact both his aptitude and attitude. Vision therapy has helped JT develop persistence and the ability to pursue and persevere difficult tasks. His hand/eye coordination has improved lessening his frustration with sports-type activities. He is reading long chapter books for fun! Most importantly, he has really developed self-control. I never thought that the greatest benefit of vision therapy would be behavior related! Best of all, JT had fun at vision therapy. Thank you for all your hard work and your mission.
