Advice for Parents

It can be worrying and scary when your child is having difficulty reading. Often a child will feel stressed and anxious and may exhibit behavioural issues in reaction to low self esteem. 

Dyslexia or reading issues do not mean your child is less intelligent or damaged. Dyslexia is a neurological difference. This means the brain works in a different way from most people's brains, and that can come with advantages as well as disadvantages. 

Your child might need to learn differently from other children or may have problems such as visual stress that can be diagnosed and treated to help them reach their potential.

If you would like to talk to us about assessing your child for visual stress please send us an email or send us a message on Facebook.
