< An undiagnosed vision issue could easily be mistaken for a learning disability. Does your child have an undiagnosed vision problem?>
I’m thrilled to have pediatric OT and vision rehab specialist Robert Constantine guest post for me today. Did you know that school vision screenings only detect 20-30% of vision problems?
Is it an undiagnosed Vision issue?
Vision is our furthest reaching sense. It tells us 75% of what we know about the world around us.
It affects movement, balance, and reading and writing ability.
But vision is a frequently overlooked contributor to academic problems. Undiagnosed eye movement problems can mimic conditions like ADHD and dyslexia and are not identified on school screenings, making a complete vision exam a must for every child.
