Visual Perceptual Skills Assessment, Learning Assessments
Hello Experienced Parents,
My 6yo 1st grade daughter was assessed at UCB Optometry & found to have several things including exophoria (eyes may drift differently), vergence infacility (problems with the eye teaming system), farsightedness, things up close bring blurred, spatial planning & tracking difficulty, etc! It was recommended that she get progressive lenses & return for an “abbreviated visual perceptual skills assessment” for possible vision therapy. Problem is I found the supervising optometrist a little difficult to communicate with in-person plus extremely hard to reach by phone or email through their email system (she still hasn’t answered my follow up questions 2-3 weeks later). Has anyone else dealt with this & found another better place to complete a visual perceptual skills assessment? (And if you have experience with a full assessment for learning problems including dyslexia, dyscalculia & inattention - do you know if any of the visual perceptual tests fall into a more comprehensive assessment?) I think vision is a part of her challenge but not all of it & I want to get a very good learning disability assessment beyond vision down the road (before a school district one), so any recommendations or advice about that would also be welcome. Thank you!
