Before vision therapy, my daughter Katie, age 9, hated school. Homework was a nightmare for the entire family. I had to force her to do it, and it would often take hours just to do one thing, invariably with her ending up in tears. She had low self-esteem and longed to be one of the “smart kids” in school. Instead, she felt awful because she always needed help and finished her work last. After vision therapy, our lives have completely changed. Katie loves school now! She does her homework as soon as she gets home without being told and rarely needs help. She is excelling to the point she has made the honor roll and is among the first to finish her work in class. Her self-esteem is up, and she feels good about herself, confident and proud that she is now one of the “smart kids”. She’s so proud of herself and enthusiastic about school, she no longer dreads going. In fact, she has been writing a children’s book on her own, and the school is going to have it published for her. Vision therapy has made all the difference in the world to her and us.
