Thank you =) I am crossing my fingers. I heard a lot of good things about this clinic.


Quoting Momof4AEMW:

 Intersting.  Will be curious to see how it turns out.  good luck


Quoting mommy4lyf:


I just copied and paste it from the clinic website:

I am full time homeschooling now and I observed that he have sometimes problem identifying "n" and "h" or read "s" and "c" but if I asked him to write the word, he'll usually write it with no problem. Last January, he had his first eye exam and the result was "mild astigmatism" - doesn't need glasses yet. Another homeschooler from the therapy clinic suggested to have my son evaluated by the vision therapist. So, I made the appointment 2 months ago (it will take 2 visits to complete the evaluation). I will keep you guys posted. I was just hoping that someone who already had experience who wants to share. I am a little nervous.

Quoting Momof4AEMW:

hmm..no feedback, just curious to see what other's say.  I have heard very good things on the hippotherapy.  What is the vision therapy exactly?

I've had students who did vision therapy. None of them stuck with it because their parents didn't see any improvements.
