What is Vision Therapy?

Sensory processing dysfunction exists when sensory signals don’t get organized into appropriate responses. It can affect people in only one of the senses or multiple senses. Depending on which sense or senses are affected you can see the following symptoms:

  • Low muscle tone
  • Handwriting difficulties
  • Difficulty with ball or sport activities
  • Aversion to touch and/or movement
  • Motion coordination
  • Difficulty in making the transition from one activity to the next
  • Tantrums
  • Many other symptoms that create difficulties in everyday life

What is the difference between Vision Therapy and Occupational Therapy? We do not treat the eyes as separate entities, but as a part of the total eye-mind-body connection. Vision therapy involves specific activities designed to improve eye teaming, focusing, eye movements, peripheral vision, depth perception, vision motor skills,

Occupational therapy is a series of sensory/motor activities specifically designed to enhance gross/fine motor coordination, balance/equilibrium, postural control, bilateral awareness, gross motor planning, tactile awareness and tolerance, and eye-hand coordination. The doctor, staff, patient, and guardians mutually decide on which therapy treatment is most appropriate.
