Well, today difficult child had his evaluation. It was confirmed that he has a classic convergence issue. Other than that he has 20/20 vision, no color issues. What an extremely thorough exam. husband and I really liked the Dr. Very thorough and good with difficult child. He starts vision therapy next week. Did confirm that insurance covers, we just pay the co-pay. Dr figures about 30 hours of therapy needed with support "homework" at home. difficult child's reading really took off this past late spring (@6) and he still does well, but flits from table top tasks that require visual concentration and struggles some with-comprehension after reading. This is because it takes all he has to focus on the reading. No one has ever picked up on this before. He's only had his "eye exams" during his regular physicals. They didn't even incorporate any type of tracking test, only had difficult child read from the eye chart. My mother told me our pediatrician used to do tracking with us as kids. I don't know if this was overlooked during his physicals or they're not doing it. I WILL be bringing it up at his next appointment. Had we not requested and Occupational Therapist (OT) evaluation back in March at school, we never may have known it to be an issue which could've put him so far behind in school. He is so smart (doing 4th grade level math in 2nd grade) it would have been so sad if we didn't know enough to have this addressed. Thankfully, the school has worked with-him for 9 months and realized it is beyond what they are trained to correct. Funny thing, difficult child met a boy his age sledding over xmas vacation that lives in another town. difficult child got the boy's ph#, but they haven't talked. As we were waiting for our evaluation the boy came in with-his dad for vision therapy. They recognized each other and began to play a game together. Cute.
