When we first came to Dr. O’Connor Nora was a 6-year-old, 1st-grade student who didn’t like school. It took us all night to do homework with lots of tears and yelling. Every night she would say “I can’t do it!”. She was “stuck” at the same reading level for 10 months with no improvement. Within 2 months of Nora starting vision therapy, she jumped up 2 reading levels at school. The tears were less and less and Nora wouldn’t argue every night doing homework. She started to want to read and we could tell she was trying. When Nora would read to us she started to sound out the letters in the words, blending them together, which she previously struggled with.
Now Nora loves school and doesn’t give us a hard time about going anymore or doing her homework. She has just entered 2nd grade and while still behind every day seems to be improving more and more. We can’t wait to see the progress she continues to make.
