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.
