My eldest daughter just finished up 39 weeks of visual therapy. It almost broke me, but she successfully finished the program, and has made significant improvements in things like visual convergence and saccades. Will it translate into improved reading skills and better grades? Judging from her reading aloud today, I'm skeptical, but there's no way the overall experience and hard work has hurt her.

Her doctor is an extremely animated individual who really connects with the kids, and visual therapy is clearly her passion. The therapists are kind and committed, and the office environment is hip and inviting. In fact, my other daughter doesn't even mind being dragged there to wait out her sister's sessions.

She and my husband seem to find lots of fun things to do:

Well, if *that*'s visual therapy, sign me up!

She's adorable, Beth. And so big. And looks great in black.

love the shades :) and the model couldn't be cuter!
I'll have to check in with you after a long bored/board meeting to find out what visual therapy involves.

I can't decide which specs I like the most on your girl. I'm too distracted by her precocious smile. I am going to miss seeing that sweet face every day!!
