After talking with Mrs. Jen (PT) we decided it was time to take Ayden Jane to storm eye institute. She has seen an ophthalmologist closer to home here but I just want some pediatric experts to take a look and see if there is anything we need to work on.

I notice Ayden Jane struggles with depth perception a bit. It comes across as having a hard time judging where things are. Maybe that is more body awareness than vision? Who knows.

She also has a hard time making her pencil go where she wants it to.  Like if she needs to write in a box or on a line....  Again, is it the eyes?  The motor planning? Something in getting them to work together? Is there something we can do to help?

Lastly, and the one that really made Jen say make the call and check it out is that when Ayden Jane is reading and gets tired or has a hard time figuring out a word, she turns the paper counterclockwise about a quarter turn. I also notice she skips lines frequently and has a hard time finding where she is after that.

These things may all be developmental and may come on their own. Or not come....  Mostly, I just want to be sure that if vision therapy is something that could help her to get her eyes to work together better or get her eyes and hands to work together better than I want to give it a shot.
