Vision Training Evaluations

 

We offer two evaluations.  A Binocular Vision Evaluation evaluates visual skills and a Visual Perceptual Evaluation evaluates visual perceptual skills and includes a screening for dyslexia, as well as other screenings.  For more information on the evaluations, see below.  

 

Following testing, you will receive a comprehensive report of the findings with recommendations for treatment.  We offer vision therapy for treatment of many visual problems.  Visual skills are critical for learning and reading; however, there are other factors involved and often a multi-disciplinary approach is important.  Our testing and report will provide you with important information that will help you understand your child’s specific strengths and weakness, the most appropriate strategies and activities for helping your child improve, and if indicated, referral to other professionals such as speech therapists, audiologists, occupational therapists and physical therapists.   

 

We would look forward to working with you to help you or your child reach your visual, educational, occupational and athletic goals.
