Integrative Vision Therapy
Building Better Connections!
The proven success of our vision therapy program can be easily summed up as our EYES + BRAIN + BODY approach. The key is to ensure that all 3 areas become fully integrated and automated. Without this approach, it is likely that a patient would simply develop a variety of “splinter” skills…only enabling them to perform a particular visual task, such as tracking, scanning, or focusing in isolation and without integration of the brain/body connection. In other words, not being able to walk and chew gum at the same time! That is why our integrative vision therapy program initially introduces activities in a specific hierarchy to develop visual skills separately and then increases the demand until the patient is utilizing cognitive and motor skills at the same time. This allows individuals to not only develop better visual skills, but also build a stronger whole body connection for lasting results!
Our Program Is:
By interacting with specialized equipment and techniques, our vision therapy patients progress through increasingly challenging tasks, which require the coordination of their eyes + brain + body to be successful.
Each weekly one hour session, is personally designed and implemented in a 1:1 setting. This allows for immediate feedback in assisting patients to gain more visual awareness, accuracy, stamina, and speed in their performance. Your vision therapy plan will be designed to fit your unique needs. We understand that, vision therapy should be designed to suit the individual not the individual to suit the therapy!
Home based therapy activities that present “doable challenges” are provided each week to supplement the office visits, and help further develop newly emerging skills.
Once a strong foundation of visual skills is developed, the demands of the activities are increased and integrated with auditory and motor demands…imagine tracking and catching a ball while walking and naming letters of the alphabet to the beat of a metronome!
