Anna – Mordecai’s Mom
Our son came to IVDC because of difficulty learning to read. He knew letter sounds very well, but he could not apply them to new material. He is now reading to his younger brother at bedtime! School has been less difficult for him because he can read instructions independently. Independent reading has also lessened his frustration and improved his focus when doing academic tasks. This all took time and effort.
An early result of vision therapy was finally (age 8) learning to ride a bicycle on two wheels. He would also say he runs better (straighter). His dad has notice better fine motor skills when playing video games. IVDC develops these skills while also engaging new learning. We were so excited to see our son develop cursive handwriting, too! Vision therapy takes patience and often a family commitment, but it was so worth it.
