The American Optometric Association recognizes the following basic vision abilities required for school:
Students who are labeled as "lazy" or "learning-disabled" often have vision-related learning issues, or deficiencies in one or more of the above criteria, that can be addressed with vision therapy. Vision therapy strengthens and coordinates eye muscles to improve tracking, focusing, binocular vision and visual processing, making it easier to read and easier to learn.
Dr. Leanne Liddicoat, F.C.O.V.D, is specially trained and certified in Developmental Optometry and together our vision therapists, provides vision therapy for children and adults, including those with Autism Spectrum disorders. Vision therapy begins with a comprehensive eye evaluation, and a Visual Skills Evaluation (VSE) with Dr. Liddicoat. After initial evaluation, we tailor a vision therapy program to meet your individual needs as you work with a specially-trained vision therapist. Click here to see the whole process.
