We were advised by a dyslexia specialist to go and see Mr Adler in the summer of 2013 as K was falling behind yearly with her school work. We were at a loss as to what to do. Extra tuition wasn’t working. We had not heard of the condition of Visual Stress and went to the appointment with Mr. Adler not quite knowing what to expect. The tests he carried out were extensive and it was incredible to watch the change in K’s reading as the most effective colours were presented.
By the end of the first appointment she could easily read through a piece of text without hesitation which she had not been able to do previously.
The improvement in K’s school work is tenfold. Within six months of receiving her lenses she had gone from a reading age of seven to ten years. K’s teachers and us as parents were amazed. She is flying ahead in class and did remarkably well in her recent exams. She is now considered to have reached her appropriate grade level. Her confidence both at school and home is greatly improved.
K now loves to read in bed, can read a menu when we visit a restaurant, tell the time, read information on a board, all the things a normal 11 year old can do. BRILLIANT.
