Has anyone's LO had vision therapy? The devel pedi referred my son for vision and hearing exams as part of the assessment process. Alex's PT has said he has visual-motor issues and that's been part of his PT therapy goals.
The eye exam was today. DH took Alex and now I'm wishing I had because I have questions! The eye dr said Alex's vision is technically fine but that (at least the way DH explained it secondhand) he uses both his eyes and his head to track instead of just his eyes, and that's a delay compared to how he should be visually processing at almost 4. The dr recommended vision therapy and gave DH a brochure for a vision therapy center that he runs and said they'd be contacting us to set something up.
TBH I've never even heard of vision therapy. I guess this will address the visual-motor aspect? Alex's PT had recommended scaling back now and planning to move back to "as-needed" PT in January but Alex does still tend to trip and stumble a lot, bump into things, etc.; we're always having to remind him to "look where you're going" so I'm assuming this will help with those issues. Anyone with experience with vision therapy care to experience what it's like and if it helped your LO? Was your LO in vision therapy for similar issues?
