Subject: question about reading and NLD

My son is having a hard time focusing while reading. He says that the words become blurred. Is this normal for NLD and is there anything that can be done for it?

Blurring words are more likely from a visual processing disorder. He should be seen by an educational optometrist and/or screened for Irlen Syndrome. Many kids have issues like this that are overlooked.
