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
