It’s Not Always Dyslexia

image (6)

An astonishing 5 to 15% of people in the US struggle with dyslexia. Because of this high rate, you might not be surprised if your child or a child you work with receives this diagnosis. But sometimes that diagnosis deserves a second look.

According to our Developmental Optometrist, Dr. Judy Cao, “Having eye tracking problems and skipping words when reading is often a vision problem that mimics dyslexia. While vision therapy doesn’t solve dyslexia, it often can mitigate symptoms by treating the underlying visual problems.”

We enjoy collaborating with other health professionals such as psychologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists, educational therapists, and many more to see how collectively as a team we can help you or your child. We are excited to meet you at our San Gabriel Optometry and have you be a part of our Vizen family.
