Subject: Vision therapy

Our 7 y.o. son just started 32 weeks of vision therapy. We'd like to hear from anyone who's had positive/negative experiences with it. He's dyslexic and we know vision therapy won't directly treat that; however, in addition to dyslexia he has signficant eye tracking/teaming problems, based on 14 tests the certified vision therapy optometrist gave him.

My son had 16 weeks of VT and we followed up with at home exercices for some time after that. He experienced some improvement, but the improvement was not sustained once we stopped actively exercising.

We have decided not to continue - not so much because it isn't effective, but because in the scheme of things, there are other issues that also require attention that demand his time. We are trying to focus where we can get the biggest bang for the investment.

Good luck!
