Our research shows that children only know what they have experienced. Therefore, fuzzy letters, words or even faces may not seem strange to them because that’s all they know. A child who has a difficult time hearing may struggle in class and may feel socially isolated. Sometimes parents and teachers may feel that their child has “tuned them out” when in reality, something may be preventing the child from hearing clearly.
Finding and treating eye problems such as blurry vision, Amblyopia (lazy eye) and Strabismus (crossed eyes) at an early age may have a significant impact on improving a child’s success in school and can often be treated effectively with early detection. Early treatment of hearing problems also leads to better outcomes for the child. In some cases, if the vision or hearing problem is not identified and corrected early enough, permanent damage may result.
