Can Vision Therapy influence academic performance?


Up to 80% of all learning occurs through visual pathways.
17 visual skills are required for school, and they are all essential for learning.

Academic challenges for children with reduced visual skills arise daily. Children with reduced visual skills will find it challenging to keep up with reading or comprehension, as both of these tasks require functional vision skills that may be difficult for the child.

The child may also rush through an assignment to avoid blurry or double vision, headaches, and eye fatigue, resulting in mistakes which can impact their overall academic performance. Additionally, a child with reduced visual skills may avoid reading or daydream during class, as the extra effort needed to focus and process visual information can cause headaches or fatigue.
