Children, Phorias and Learning

What does it feel like to have an untreated phoria?

Basically you are looking at something but your eye gaze is somewhere else.

In reading, your child’s eye gaze could be between the words rather than on the words. it could be between the lines or at the top or bottom of the words.

In maths this is even more pronounced because we tend to work with lots of small symbols in a big space. At least with writing, the lines lead your eyes to try to focus into the correct place. But with no visual guide in maths, your gaze could be anywhere on the page. Your child’s gaze might well not be on the number, symbol, line or shape that they want to look at.

Misdirected eye-gaze left untreated causes exhaustion, frustration and low self esteem.

If you suspect your child has issues with eye gaze why not try the Reading Test with them.

Hi, Welcome to my website. I am a healer, writer and musician. I like to express my passion for healing through my writing and music. I also enjoy helping people one-to-one, to heal, find their voice, connect with their passion and be their true to themselves. I live by the light meaning that from when I get up the morning I have half an eye out to check what the light is doing. How I see the light affects all my choices of the day - what I wear, what I eat, what I do and how I relate to myself and other people. I hope you enjoy my website.
