Childhood developmental vision problems

Has your child been diagnosed with or labeled by terms such as the following?

  • Dyslexic
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Developmental delay
  • Nonverbal learning disorder
  • Non-specific learning disorder
  • Behavioral problem
  • Slow learner
  • Underachiever
  • Juvenile delinquent

Sadly, many children with visual development disorders are mislabeled, misdiagnosed or mistreated. As a result, you, your child and your family suffer needlessly. The Vision & Conceptual Development Center (VCDC) is about putting an end to needless suffering. They have helped thousands of children and families go on to lead happier, healthier and more productive lives.

Highly trained, experienced vision therapists

Though they work with the wide variety of vision problems, their specialty is working with visuo-cognitive difficulties, often described as visuo-spatial, visual perceptual or visual processing disorders. They tailor their approach to your child’s particular needs, to remedy his or her condition in the most positive and nurturing way. Their staff is well-trained and highly experienced with autism, PDD, ADD, dyslexia and other so-called learning disabilities. They see children who have not yet learned how to use their eyes and vision correctly and have not integrated their visual skills with the rest of their senses and movements. These difficulties are often not observed until second or third grade, when reading demands increase and learning requires:

  • Convergence: pointing both eyes at the same object
  • Focus: seeing clearly & changing from near & far distances
  • Tracking: following a moving object smoothly & accurately
  • Binocular fusion: using both eyes together as a team
  • Visual acuity: clarity of sight
  • Stereopsis: binocular depth perception

These are learned skills. And the vision therapy specialists at VCDC know how to teach them. They’re great with children, too. Each one delivers compassionate, patient care combined with great dedication and passion.
