My daughter has convergence insufficiency. It's unclear at this point if she has dyslexia as well, but it's very common for children with convergence insufficiency to have dyslexia as well. I check out the manual (Gillingham Manual) for the Gillingham-Orton method and have been applying some of the methods. It has helped greatly in her reading abilities. I'm doing it on my own, but there are several multi-sensory programs out there based on the Gillingham-Orton Method. That's why I highly suggest that is what you look into. Right now I'm doing it on my own with things I'm getting at the library and research on how. However if I was ever to use a pre-made system it would be Barton Reading.
