Many people are quite misinformed regarding reading and learning disabilities. Learning disabilities are generally not related to eye problems. Most learning disabilities involve difficulty processing information by the brain.
Many reading difficulties trace back to difficulties with the skills of reading. This is different than indicating an eye or vision problem.
However, any child being evaluated for a reading disability should have a complete eye evaluation. There are simple things that can be identified and detected and treated that can impact learning. Specialists What a great program in which to be involved in helping students with these difficulties should be aware of these issues. The school system provides in-depth resources for both the identification and treatment of these issues.
