Vision Therapy Success

This week, I saw M for a follow up and she gave me this! Love getting these little drawings from patients 😊
M first started coming to us in grade 1 because she was having difficulty with reading and she really disliked it. She kept losing her place, skipping words, and reversing letters. She couldn’t seem to remember any words longer than 3 letters.
After vision therapy, she no longer loses her place or skip words, and has gotten much better at reading! She has even started to enjoy it, and her mom said she picked out some English books to read, even though she only practices in French at school! She was also able to learn to spell tricky words like “friend.”
We’re so proud of how far she has come!!

Therapy for Dizziness

If you’re experiencing visual symptoms after a concussion (eg. problems with focusing or reading, using a computer/device, dizziness etc), call us for a Visual Skills Assessment! (905) 666-4848

Researchers say rehabilitation has also proven effective for mitigating symptoms such as dizziness and changes in vision, like difficulty with focus. This includes engaging in visual and vestibular exercises, which assist with balance and spatial orientation. Therapy can help the brain to establish new neurologic pathways to regain function or to bypass disturbing signals.

Active recovery is the new standard of treatment, but this does NOT mean that athletes should still compete during recovery.

Concussion Recovery

Today we’re recognizing the first Rowan’s Law Day in honour of Rowan Stringer. Ontario is leading the way in concussion awareness and safety. We honour Rowan’s memory by helping people across Ontario increase their awareness of the dangers of concussions and how to improve safety in sport.

Reducing the risk of concussions is always the goal. But concussions happen and knowing what to do – whether you’re an athlete, a parent, a coach or a teacher – saves lives.

Rehab for your visual system is also an important part of concussion recovery. Visit our Concussion page and to learn more!
