Vision Therapy Helped With Reading

C came to us because of problems with reading. He enjoyed reading but was skipping words and lost his place at school when he was trying to copy from the board. C also would get tired from reading and got headaches when reading more than 20 minutes, and if he tried reading in the car, he would also get headaches from that. One major concern for C was that he enjoyed playing the piano, but when reading sheet music, he would lose his place when trying to go to the next line.
After vision therapy, he stopped getting headaches as frequently, and was able to read in the car without getting any headaches. C also skipped words less when reading, and found playing the piano much easier, as he could follow along the sheet music without losing his place. His piano teacher even noted he was much better at following the music. Congratulations C! We will miss you and your passion for drawing and music.
