Hannah is our Accredited Vision Therapist. Hannah has an emphasis on treating children who have learning difficulties and/or developmental delays
Vision Therapy is a treatment program in which the therapist provides the patient with the oppurtunity to learn and develop abilities that either were not present or were poorly developed in the patients overall profile of visual abilities. Vision Therapy utilises various procedures to aid Eye-Mind-Body co-ordination. This enables people to use their vision more effectively. We use a multi-sensory program that improves integration of vision with gross and fine motor abilities, speech and hearing, and rhythm and timing abilities. Therapy in our office is done on a one-on-one basis for 45 minutes in blocks of 10 weeks. Four to five activities are done each session with some of these taken for home practice. A key aspect of therapy is the involvement of the parents as home therapists. We require 20-30 minutes of practice on five other days under the direct supervision of a home helper, who is most often the child’s parent.
