We all know that a child’s general development varies immensely from child to child; it is perhaps not as well known that vision also develops! Most children have not developed the necessary visual skills required for reading until after the age of three. In most case children are not visually ready to read until well after 5 or 6 years of age. Unfortunately like all skills, for various reasons sometimes there appears to be a delay in the way a child develops their visual skills. These delays can cause problems with a child’s learning ability. To learn more head to our vision therapy website.
