When certain visual skills have not been developed or are poorly-developed, learning is often difficult and stressful.
Children will typically attempt to do schoolwork, but with a lower level of comprehension or efficiency; they may even feel like they don’t understand what they’re doing.
They may also complain about feeling tired or uncomfortable while working.
Other children may rub their eyes frequently, blink excessively, or squint.
If you suspect that your child has a vision problem, it may help to talk to him or her about how his or her vision affects daily activities.
Consider asking the following questions:
Does your teacher give you extra time to finish assignments?
Do you find yourself asking others to repeat themselves?
Are you having trouble reading books?
