Before Mackenzie began vision therapy, she was struggling in a number of school subjects: reading, spelling, and math were her hardest subjects. Particularly in math, she seemed to actually be getting worse instead of better. She didn’t seem to recognize when a math symbol changed. For instance, if the first two problems were addition, she added every problem on the page, even though some problems were subtraction. Additionally, she was making no progress in multiplication. One week she would know some multiplication facts, and the next week she would look at them like she had never seen them before. Since beginning vision therapy, Mackenzie’s progress in Math has been amazing. I first noticed it when she took the initiative to do her math work on her own and completed a whole lesson with no help and no tears! We are now almost through a whole year of school and vision therapy, and Mack has mastered her multiplication facts, moved onto division with no problem and is progressing with fractions and beginning geometry and algebra. Being able to not only learn new math concepts without crying, but then also progress in them in HUGE for her. It is wonderful to see her progress and gain confidence in areas that were previously frustrating and demeaning to her.
