Why is my Child a Slow Reader & Struggling in School?
What Every Parent Needs to Know
by Dr. Barry Fretwell & Dr. Michael Conte
Nearly 25% of school-aged children have difficulty reading. Ten million students have vision problems, and 85% of juveniles in the court system are functionally illiterate. The answer may be as simple as an eye exam. Why is My Child a Slow Reader? summarizes the importance of eye exams in children and explores the correlation between vertical phoria and the diagnosis of attention and reading disorders that can lead to poor performance in school and students eventually dropping out. Research by Dr. Fretwell and Dr. Conte suggests that some behavioral disorders in children are not psychological; they have to do with the child's eye alignment. Stressing the need for parents to seek additional eye exams even if their children are labeled with twenty/twenty vision, the authors explain vertical phoria and how to identify symptoms.
Relief is possible for children who are victims of vertical phoria. All child care providers, including parents, grandparents, teachers, and school nurses, need to learn about this condition and how correcting it can help students increase their reading ability. A student who can read has endless possibilities to succeed!
