Vision & Learning
80% of learning relies on your visual system
Over 82% of learning disabilities are related to reading difficulties. The Visagraph is used to do a silent reading assessment while tracking each eye independently. This gives powerful insight to “how” you read. It is designed to identify visual, perceptual, and information processing difficulties.
However, many people experience difficulties with reading and dyslexia due to a visual tracking problem (proper eye movement along the page). The Visagraph measures how your eyes track along the page while reading. An assessment can determine how your eyes work, and a personalized visual therapy program will help you begin reading and learning more efficiently.
Unlock your learning potential.
The Visagraph provides powerful insight to track eye movements while reading. The Visagraph detects any inefficiencies of your eyes moving on the page. It is designed to identify visual and information processing difficulties.
After the assessment, you can actually watch where your eyes were looking on the page.
How are Visagraph assessments conducted?
The Visagraph goggles are placed over the eyes and adjusted accordingly. While wearing the goggles, the student reads a short text selection then answers ten comprehension questions. The Visagraph automatically generates a simulation of the student’s eye movements over the text. For non-readers, a numbers tracking test and visual skills test can be administered.
If there are any areas that need improvement that are identified with the Visagraph, a full eye exam and a binocular vision assessment would be recommended. If necessary, a personalized plan will be created which may include glasses and/or vision therapy. Vision therapy is supported by ongoing evidence-based research and uses the principles of neuroplasticity to treat the underlying issue. Each program is customized to the patient’s needs and progress. The success of vision therapy relies on patient motivation, attendance, and diligence with home exercises.
Common symptoms of visual-learning problems:
- Losing place or skipping small words
- Seeing text drift in and out of focus, or move on the page
- Avoidance or frustration when reading
- Eye fatigue
- Frontal headaches
