Vision Therapy for Patients with ADHD / ADD
Does your child have difficulty concentrating in school?
Are you searching for a non-drug treatment or therapy for ADHD?
Children who have undiagnosed vision problems such as accommodation dysfunctions (focusing the eyes) or poor eye teaming (convergence insufficiency) often seem inattentive in an academic environment. *These vision problems are not detected in the pediatrician’s office or by the school nurse. * Because most of the information we take in (especially at school) is through our visual system, a dysfunctional visual system can result in sensory issues, inattentiveness, impulsivity, dislike of reading, poor oganization or executive function skills, and many other issues that are associated with ADHD/ADD.
Because of the possible side effects of ADHD / ADD medications, many parents are exploring other methods of treatments. Vision therapy has been found to help manage many of the symptoms associated with ADD/ADHD and, for many children it eliminates the need for medication.
Vision therapy can also be helpful in controlling certain behaviors (impulsivity, hyperactivity, and distractibility) in children who have been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD.
