Learning Related Vision Difficulties in Children
Studies show that approximately 80 percent of what a child learns in school is information that is presented visually. If your child is showing signs of not doing well in school, one basic area is to check their vision.
According to the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, below is a table of symptoms and their associated vision problems.
Treatment of Learning-Related Vision Difficulties
If you suspect your child has any of these symptoms, we recommend booking an appointment with Dr. Jean-Pierre Guillon. Jean-Pierre has a special interest in children’s vision and will assist in correcting any learning related vision difficulties your child may be experiencing. Furthermore, we recommend you contact your child’s teacher at school, so they can assist where possible.
Sometimes children with learning-related vision difficulties can go through emotional problems like anxiety or low self esteem. Reassure your child that these difficulties have nothing to do with a person’s intelligence. Many children with such difficulties simply have a different technique in handling information than their peers.
