M came to us because he was having difficulties with reading, where he would lose his place and skip words often while reading and when trying to copy from the board at school. He also loved baseball and wanted to be better at catching and throwing, and have better coordination overall. He had been diagnosed with Developmental Coordination Disorder.
During vision therapy, M and his mom started noticing that he was already improving on being able to follow things with his eyes and that his hand-eye coordination had improved. As we continued vision therapy, M found copying from the board was getting easier, and he started reading more often. Upon completion of vision therapy, M’s reading had greatly improved and he was above his reading grade level and had improved with his catching and throwing skills. Congratulations M! We will miss you and your love of baseball and exuberant personality.
