Schoolvision studies the way our eyes work together as we read; in particular the relationship between vision and difficulties with reading (including dyslexia). Words and letters appear to shift out of order sending confused messages to the brain which can cause difficulties in reading and spelling. If this takes place while a child is learning to read the effect on their confidence, enjoyment of reading and behaviour can be profound, with long term effects into adulthood - so while it is never too late to help adults with reading difficulties, the greatest benefits are achieved by addressing these issues during childhood.
As we approach the end of 2019 and into the very fun festive part of the year, we are winding down and reflecting on a busy past 12 months here at McCrystal Opticians.
Ever wondered what Schoolvision is all about and how can it help your child with dyslexia?
