Travis' teacher at school said she had never had a student make such an improvement (from 1.2 to 3.8)! The most rewarding part for us is the change in Travis' attitude. [>More]
The rewards for Mom? No more spending six hours on homework, ... great grades in school![More]
Someone told us to go for something called Vision Therapy with Dr. X. We said, "We have an academic problem not an eye problem!" How wrong we were![More]

Meredith's great report card in her first semester at middle school is because of Vision Therapy.[More]
When I first came here, I thought it would be boring and not worth it. But then when I kept coming, my reading and my grades improved in two classes. I would recommend this to other kids.[More]
If any child I knew was having trouble like Stephanie was, I would definitely tell them about Vision Therapy. [More]
... not only was Rachel getting straight As on her report card, but she also took a liking to reading. The once unthinkable and undoable has actually become enjoyable. [More]

School grades are better, homework is less of a hassle, and Travis is no longer required to see the Reading Specialist every day.[More]
He found out that my son's eyes were over-focusing when he read and recommended bifocals with a reading prescription. No one else had ever found or suggested that before. Mitch has now made honor roll six terms in a row, (he hadn't before) and loves to read.[More]
Since she completed the Vision Therapy sessions, her grades are now back to A's and B's and she's back on the Honor Roll. She even reads every day.[More]
Vision Therapy was good for her. Her grades went from D's to the B honor roll. She now reads for fun and is a lot happier than she was.[More]

Douglas has done very well since he's been in Vision Therapy. When he started 6th grade, we were concerned because he has struggled so much in the past. We were surprised to see improvements in his grades the first report card! Douglas had always scored Cs, Ds, and Fs. This report card was Bs, Cs, and two high Ds.
Our first intimation of Travis' vision problem was when he started 1st grade. We thought it was just laziness on his part or perhaps a personality conflict with his teacher. To us, our only obvious solution was to step up the discipline. As time went on, the problem just got worse when more reading skills were being required at school.
I noticed that my son Kyle was having a reading problem in the 3rd grade. After many meetings with my son's school, they labeled him as being immature because he cried a lot in school.
We brought our daughter, Laurie, to you about 30 years ago. Laurie was having a hard time in school and we had heard of you and Vision Therapy from a friend, so we decided to give it a shot. Although we live in Riverton, WY, we traveled to Boulder several times that summer for Vision Therapy sessions and did therapy at home between visits. Laurie improved greatly, she graduated from college, and became a successful buyer for K-Mart.
Before therapy, Stephanie wasn't trying to read any challenging books or stories. She was frustrated with school reading assignments, and she wasn't focused during reading.
Amber's grades have improved two letter grades in math. She now enjoys reading, where before Vision Therapy she hated reading. This has been the most wonderful thing that has happened to us as parents, as well as Amber.
When my daughter Rachel started first grade, her teacher noticed that she had a lack of concentration, trouble with losing her place, and great difficulty reading. In the evening, doing homework exercises with her was almost impossible. Simple reading exercises would often take hours. After much research into the matter, I decided to see a specialist. The doctor's name that kept coming up time and again was that of Dr. X, a developmental optometrist.
Chris was struggling in school. His timed test scores were terrible. It took him too much time to complete his homework. He was miserable and difficult to live with.
Jeffrey was having some difficulty with concentration and focus in reading. After hearing about Vision Therapy, his teacher recommended he be tested, and he indeed was a good candidate for therapy.
Since Samantha started Vision Therapy, she has wanted to pick up a book to read. She used to fight me every time reading was requested. Now, she is more confident in her reading ability, and she's not embarrassed to read out loud to others.
When I first came here, I thought it would be boring and not worth it. But then when I kept coming, my reading and my grades improved in two classes. I would recommend this to other kids because you'll learn and have fun at the same time. My favorite part is playing the Vision Therapy computer and cards. You'll pretty much have an all-around good time if you do Vision Therapy.
School grades are better, homework is less of a hassle, and Travis is no longer required to see the Reading Specialist every day. Thank you for the Vision Therapy training.
Kristy was having problems at school with her homework and assignments. We tried private tutors, even private school, but this did not help. Someone told us to go for something called Vision Therapy with Dr. X. We said, "We have an academic problem not an eye problem!" How wrong we were!
As someone who works in the optical field, I have always been very careful in regard to my children's eyes and vision. Yearly eye exams were done. Glasses prescribed as necessary. My son had done O.K.(but not great) in school, didn't mind reading, but never really excelled.
Before Melissa started Vision Therapy, she had been an honor student since kindergarten. When she started 3rd grade, she was doing well at the beginning of the school year, but by the second semester, her grades started dropping to D's and F's. After several developmental vision evaluations, Melissa's problem was detected. Since she completed the Vision Therapy sessions, her grades are now back to A's and B's and she's back on the Honor Roll. She even reads every day.
When Heather first came here, her grades and behavior were getting bad! She was really moody about school and saying that she could not do it. But, Vision Therapy was good for her. Her grades went from D's to the B honor roll. She now reads for fun and is a lot happier than she was. This is a very good program. Keep up the good work!
Ben's self-confidence has improved. He always enjoyed school but he doesn't get as tired with sore eyes. His grades have also improved: He went from 10 "above averages" to 17 with no below averages. It was well worth the time and money. The best part was that he loved going to therapy to show the therapist how much he improved.
Stephanie Scagliozzi's Parents
We noticed Ryan's schoolwork has improved. As long as he brings his work home his grades get better. Ryan doesn't seem to bring his reading materials close to him while he's reading anymore. Therapy was fun for him. There were a lot of fun activities. He will miss therapy when he's finished.
The Vision Therapy program has helped Rose tremendously with her schoolwork and attitude toward school. Her grades have improved to the point where she made it on the honor roll. This last quarter was the first time in three years that she did not have a "D" on her report card. She likes to read now, where she never did in the past. Rose used to come home often complaining of headaches. The Vision Therapy, including pointers on holding her head still while reading and eye massage, have helped to eliminate this problem.
Kevin has struggled with reading since he was in first grade. He started going to Dr. X when he was 15 years old. We had tried numerous avenues of intervention but none seemed to really work. I only wish we had started with Vision Therapy sooner. In the 9 months of therapy Kevin's reading comprehension improved from 5.6 (5th grade 6th month) grade equivalent to 9.2 (9th grade 2nd month) grade equivalent. These results were received from the testing done by the school he attends. They (the School) also were amazed at the increase.
