Success with Behavior: Self Confidence with Better Vision

... she looked up at me and said "guess that's why you wanted me to go to vision therapy, huh!" [More]

She is a happier child and can't wait to start school this year. [More]

She used to be so unsure of herself and hesitated a lot when trying to read. [More]

Now she says, "I can do it myself," and she does. Without Vision Therapy I know this would not have happened. [More]

[Vision Therapy] increased his confidence and self-esteem. His grades are steadily improving and he reads more on his own and for enjoyment. [More]

He is able to concentrate and work more efficiently because his visual comprehension has improved. [More]

I would recommend a Vision Therapy exam to anyone who has a child who is easily frustrated with schoolwork and homework.[More]

Now, as a result of completing VT, I have seen a great improvement in her concentration, self-esteem and study habits. I would definitely recommend VT. [More]

What changes have I seen from Vision Therapy? I've seen a child go from low self-confidence to high self-esteem. [More]

Vision Therapy has helped Troy develop new skills, which has helped improve his grades and self-confidence. It's a shame a program such as this cannot just be incorporated into our school systems.[More]

One thing I do wish is that we had found Vision Therapy for my son earlier. [More]

Now that Catlin has completed Vision Therapy, her reading skills have soared in comparison. Her teacher at school praises her ability to complete her work and assignments in a timely manner and how well she is performing as a student overall. [More]

We have seen huge changes in Hannah's attitude toward school, reading, and in attempting new things. [More]

The therapy has also given him a lot of confidence. He is able to raise his hand in class and read out loud. [More]

I wish we had known to do it sooner. Because of this therapy, her confidence has grown and now she knows she can do it. [More]

She used to take hours to do homework and it was a total frustration to her. Now she's so much faster ... Just the free time that my daughter received through Visual Therapy is worth everything to her. [More]


Read full stories below.

I cannot begin to express how helpful this program was for my daughter, not only in the areas we were able to measure but just as importantly in the areas we cannot. She has become a much more self-confident and happy individual. For the first time she was excited to return to school. She asks to read to me and does not get frustrated when she does. Her reading comprehension is right where it should be and she gains successes daily.

I'll finish in my daughter's own words when one night I told her how proud I was of her reading and she looked up at me and said "guess that's why you wanted me to go to vision therapy, huh!"

Anna never had a noticeable problem in her school work. She did a good job at covering up her problem. Her confidence has greatly improved. She is a happier child and can't wait to start school this year. In fact, she has started her math already. She continues to be an avid reader.

The one thing I notice most is her confidence level. She used to be so unsure of herself and hesitated a lot when trying to read (not even trying to pronounce a word). Now, she may not know the word but she will try to pronounce it without getting really frustrated with herself. Kellri's grades have also improved and her teacher has commented several times about her reading and the improvement since we began Vision Therapy.

There is nothing worse than watching your child struggle and not being able to help them. I am so thankful we found Dr. X so that Kellri could get the help she so badly needed!

Alteasha started Vision Therapy on March 7, 2000 with very low self-esteem, and unable to concentrate when reading. She would rub her eyes, her head would begin to hurt, and she would become so distressed, she would cry because she knew she had a problem. This child was not dumb or stupid. She was crying out for help. I found that help with Vision Therapy. Alteasha now walks tall and strong, she reads with confidence, and her comprehension has improved greatly. She had a problem completing homework, most of the time I did most of it. Now she says, "I can do it myself," and she does. Alteasha passed her reading and math exam.

Without Vision Therapy I know this would not have happened. I recommend Vision Therapy to all parents who have been told their child cannot make it.
Glenda Campbell, Alteasha's grandmother, 6/14/00


Even after being tutored for several years, our son was still having difficulty in school. He did well with an oral lesson, but struggled with written assignments. Homework took hours to complete, he would misread words, lose his place easily and not be able to concentrate. We were relieved to finally have a solution to Ryan's reading difficulties and an explanation for his struggles.

[Vision Therapy] increased his confidence and self-esteem. His grades are steadily improving and he reads more on his own and for enjoyment.
Ryan's parent


My son's self confidence is much improved thus affecting his attitude and work effort. His reading skills jumped an entire level, boosting his self-confidence. His attitude about learning and reading are very positive. He now sees himself as doing good work!

He is able to concentrate and work more efficiently because his visual comprehension has improved.
Sydney M., patient's parent


Ever since my son started Vision Therapy his self-esteem has improved tremendously. He is more self-confident and secure in certain situations, e.g., classroom, around peers, expressing his opinions on certain subjects. His homework is now completed in a shorter period of time, and just this past summer, he was able to read three novels and complete three book reports in one month. I would recommend Vision Therapy to anyone who has a child who is easily frustrated with schoolwork and homework.

Before my daughter Faith entered Vision Therapy, she had poor concentration, low self-esteem and poor study skills. She did not ask questions in class if she did not understand the material. Now, as a result of completing VT, I have seen a great improvement in her concentration, self-esteem and study habits. I would definitely recommend VT.
Lorraine Hill, Faith's parent


Loni can write things that we can read now. She is on the honor roll at school and loves school. What changes have I seen from Vision Therapy? I've seen a child go from low self-confidence to high self-esteem. Thank you and your incredible staff!
Carri Goldberg, Loni's parent, 3/24/99


Troy has always been a hard working child, but he tried to memorize everything, which was just impossible. Vision Therapy has helped Troy develop new skills, which has helped improve his grades and self-confidence.

It's a shame a program such as this cannot just be incorporated into our school systems. Hopefully, I can help spread the word about the program so others can benefit.
Jodi A. Espinoza, Troy's parent


I have seen a lot of changes in Michael since he began Vision Therapy. He is able to focus and read much better. The therapy has also given him a lot of confidence. He is able to raise his hand in class and read out loud. He wants to be a good reader and the therapy has helped a lot.

I have passed along information about Michael's Vision Therapy success to a teacher at Country Day School and she seemed pretty impressed.
Karen Shamoun (mother of Michael Shamoun)


Chelsea can read without her eyes getting tired. Her eyes do not water and get blood shot. She can focus on the board at school and look at a book and is not having problems.

These problems have been with her since 2nd grade. Later grades teachers watched her, reading lab Teachers expected more from her. We took her for testing, eye exams, and tests at school, never really finding a reason. Because of all this, her confidence was not very good.

I am glad we did this. I wish we had known to do it sooner. Because of this Vision Therapy, her confidence has grown and now she knows she can do it.

The most improvement I saw in my son while attending the Vision Therapy program was in his self-confidence and self-image as a potentially good student. Additionally, my son now feels that he reads much better and for the first time, he reads on his own the required novels for 8th grade. One thing I do wish is that we had found Vision Therapy for my son earlier. On the other hand, at his age, I think he was more aware of his improvements and appreciated all the efforts to help him.

Before Catlin began Vision Therapy, she had no self-esteem or pride in anything she accomplished and achieved. She had difficulty concentrating and staying focused on the tasks confronting her. She also had a huge problem with performing assignments too slowly.

Now that Catlin has completed Vision Therapy, her reading skills have soared in comparison. Her teacher at school praises her ability to complete her work and assignments in a timely manner and how well she is performing as a student overall.

As her parents, we have seen Caitlin grow by leaps and bounds in the last 4 to 5 weeks of Vision Therapy. Her self-esteem has improved and we are amazed at the great accomplishments in her ability to concentrate, focus and complete assignments and other tasks. They have improved in such a short period of time.
We commend our daughter on all of her hard work and success and for putting her all into the Vision Therapy program.
Beverly C. Manz, Caitlin's parent


We have seen huge changes in Hannah's attitude toward school, reading, and in attempting new things. She now anticipates that she will be successful. We have noted improvements in reading, grades, spelling, enjoyment of school, less clumsy, improved self-esteem, better memory, improved concentration and attention span. We cannot thank you enough for the help you have been to Hannah!
Hannah Patton's parent, January 9, 2002


Just the free time that my daughter received through Visual Therapy is worth everything to her, the self-assurance and the confidence means the world to me. To see her read just because is great. She used to take hours to do homework and it was a total frustration to her. Now she's so much faster and only gets frustrated when anybody would. It's been so worth all the time and money. I highly recommend this. However, remember it takes everybody to make it work. Parents are very important in the success of the program.
