What is Vision Processing Disorder?

80% of learning happens through visual pathways

Our vision can impact academic performance, sensory integration, skills, and processing. Even with 20/20 vision, vision processing disorders can interfere with reading, writing, spelling, mathematics, testing, and overall learning and educational instruction.

Many vision processing disorders are misdiagnosed as ADD, ADHD, learning disabled, or dyslexic. 90% of children with learning disabilities have some type of vision processing disorder.

Vision therapy is a treatment program prescribed to mediate visual delays or inefficiencies. Exercises and techniques support, integrate, and enhance visual input and processing skills for better hand-eye coordination, movement, balance, attention, learning, and cognitive skills.

Starting with an awareness of self, vision therapy works with the whole body, especially the brain, inner ear, and eyes, to help make better sense.
