Eyesight, or more properly, being able to see well, is foundational for academic achievement. You may think you know that and say to me that schools always screen for vision. Well, they do screen, but those screenings do not even look for some foundational problems relating to reading. They, may, however, screen for ESP! according to Texas law! Yikes! However, pervasively, what happens next is often counterproductive.
Then, even if you have your child seen by an eye doctor, Irlen syndrome is not screened. Further, in some cases, the prescriptions are not helpful at all. I explain this from my own experience.
In no case will conventional measures offer actual help in seeing better (once again, no cure, only lifetime payments). Is this accommodation rather than remediation…AGAiN?
There is good news. Beyond miracles, health measures can work wonders. Even screening for Irlen and getting an eye doctor familiar with Irlen syndrome may help immensely.
Hear my story and find clue to what you can do for your child.
