At Baxter Eye Care, we place special emphasis on the diagnosis and remediation of children’s perceptual skills, helping to avoid the developmental delays related to learning difficulties.
Perceptual skills are the groundwork upon which children build their reading and mathematical knowledge after they enter school. These concepts give children the necessary strategies to gain and organize knowledge.
We feel that children between the ages of four and nine should be screened for perceptual skills, especially if the child is having problems in school. Optometrists recommend checking on school readiness prior to first grade.
