What are learning disabilities?
Learning disabilities are considered conditions that include difficulties in acquiring skills and knowledge to the specific base level that is expected of a person (typically based on age). On average learning disabilities are usually recognized and diagnosed at a young age. However, there are some adults with special needs that also experience learning disabilities as well.
How do they tie into vision?
Vision therapy and learning disabilities tie together because they both utilize and need the same functions in order to perform/operate at their optimum level. An individual’s vision is connected to their brain, which processes everything that they see in order to learn what is being shown in front of them. The base correlation of comprehending, retaining, and repeating (when necessary) information is vital to learning.
When individuals want to understand how the two tie together, it is because they both need each other. When an individual has a vision impairment, then they will also end up having a problem with learning. The situation becomes worse with those that have learning disabilities.
