SEE HAPPINESS

For Your Child with Cerebral Palsy:

Cerebral Palsy (CP) and Vision Therapy

Cerebral Palsy is a condition in which brain damage near the time of birth results in lack of muscle control. Many of these individuals are highly intelligent despite difficulties moving hands and legs or lips and tongue—or eyes!

Dr. Cook received residency training in vision therapy for those with CP at United Cerebral Palsy in New York City.

Over half of the children with cerebral palsy have eyes that noticeably cross, drift or wander (Strabismus). If the eyes drift only part of the time, vision therapy may help with such cosmetically noticeable eye-muscle coordination problems.

There are, however, a number of individuals with CP whose eyes look straight but who still have treatable eye-muscle coordination problems that affect coordination or cause the print to blur and run together (See Convergence Insufficiency and 3D Vision. Indeed, 90 percent of children with cerebral palsy have trouble keeping the print clear when reading.

If a child or adult with CP is not performing at potential, a Vision Therapy evaluation is in order. Indeed, At Cook Vision Therapy we have seen any number of individuals with mild CP show tremendous gains in performance. The following success story is an example:

"Stephanie has been diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy, since she was very small. We weren't sure how extensive the problem was until school. The doctor's didn't really prepare us for everything. But when we found out she had a reading/writing problem, we didn't know what to do to help her. She had headaches frequently to the point of becoming sick. Then her tutors suggest Dr. Cook's Vision Therapy. We called for our appointment and were so amazed at what we learned. All the problems we'd been having concerning school and even balance could be helped tremendously! And we've noticed a great improvement in schoolwork and reading. She can actually read books for her age group! Something we thought wouldn't happen for years. Her balancing is even better. She doesn't bump into walls and fall down anymore (hardly)."
