One in four children has a vision problem that affects learning — a vision problem that is often misinterpreted as disinterest, sleepiness, dyslexia or ADHD. Eyesight (the ability to receive input through the eye) is not the same as vision (the ability to understand what that input is). Recognizing this distinction has monumental implications. Even a child with 20/20 eyesight can have a vision issue at the core of their learning problem.
To complicate matters, vision-related learning problems share the same symptoms as countless learning disability diagnoses, including:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Rereading or skipping lines of print
- Letter reversals
- Difficulty recognizing words
- Short attention span
- Poor reading comprehension
- Poor handwriting
- Slow completion of work
- Loss of interest in reading
But thanks to RightEye’s Reading Assessment test, our doctors are able to expose vision and brain health in ways not possible from standard eye tests, gifting you with the opportunity to change your child’s life forever.

Primitive reflexes are part of normal infant development, but should be integrated by the first year. Often we see retained primitive reflexes in adults and children after trauma, or in cases of ADHD, Autism, Sensory Processing Disorder and similar disorders. When these are retained they can impact social, academic and behavioral learning.
|The person struggling with ADHD may be experiencing:
• Struggling with school/work every day.
• Frustration at home/school/work.
• If grades are not where they should be – you know you/your child is smart but you aren’t seeing the expected results.
• Behavior may be hard to control including for kids hitting, kicking, biting, touching inappropriately, hyperactive; for adults always moving (knee shaking, toe tapper, pencil twirling), binge eating or drinking, procrastination.
• You or your child’s self-esteem may be falling, and or struggling with relationships.
