We heard about Vision for Life from a teacher at our school that had a student going through therapy. I reached out to this parent and asked some questions. Within a week, I had a assessment scheduled at Vision for Life. When Kelsie started Vision for Life. She was very frustrated with reading and comprehension and it would take hours to complete homework. At the initial assessment, Dr.Julie took one look at Kelsie and said she had Strabismus. Dr. Julie could see this with her sitting in the chair. Kelsie was also wearing glasses that were too strong for her and this was messing with her depth perception. Kelsie’s eyes were not reading left to right. She would come back to the second word. She was working so hard to get the words correct she was unable to comprehend what she read. After three months of therapy, Kelsie was out of her glasses. As she continued therapy, Kelsie’s confidence increased and she now enjoys reading more. This is not only true for her schoolwork, but also in sports. Since her depth perception improved, she is able to play goalie more for her soccer team. We are working on multiple year gap in reading comprehension, but it is improving every quarter. The last year has been a time commitment, but we feel this has been a lifesaver for her future. A special thank you to Kelsie’s therapist Tammy C., who was Kelsie’s cheerleader helping her and encouraging her to keep pushing. We appreciate your dedication and help along the way. We are forever thankful for Vision for Life.
