Reading Clinic

Visual Processing Difficulties is a name for a wide range of problems caused by inappropriate visual stimulus (lighting flicker, brightness, colour, fonts), signal processing and poor coordination between the eyes, which often mimic the same symptoms as Dyslexia, however the causes are different.

 

Difficulties include Merles Irlen (treated with coloured overlays & lenses) Hypotropia, Hypertropia, Exotropia and Esotropia, also known as Wandering Eye, Lazy Eye (Amblyopia), and Convergence Insufficiency. These conditions are treated with the patented Lawson Anti Suppression Device and eye exercises during series of therapeutic treatment sessions by our trained clinician, who is also an Early Years Teacher who helps students with dyslexia and those who are having difficulty learning to reading.

School Consultation Process For
An Individual Education Program(IEP).

PECM is delighted to reach out to schools, who may not have a Learning Support Department, Special Education Needs & Disability Coordination Staff.

The EAL coordination staff will often be responsible for this complex and collaborative process and for this reason, we have formulated a flow chart which hopefully visually illustrates the complexity to teaching staff and parents alike.

Advocacy and support for
parents to ensure their
students are successful.

In many cases of learning difficulties, parental support is absolutely critical if the goals and targets set are to be achievable.
 
What happens outside the classroom matters as much as what happens during the classroom because they are mutually inclusive. For example a learner with ADHD, may not have the required amount of sleep because they are gaming until the early morning hours.

Learners with visual processing difficulties can still have perfect vision and still suffer the symptoms of dyslexia and Visual processing difficulties, without detection by opticians and those without training and experience in Orthoptist. Orthoptist are allied medical professionals to the Ophthalmology field who offer a non-evasive treatment for these conditions." to "Learners with visual processing difficulties can still have 20/20 vision and still suffer the symptoms of dyslexia and visual processing difficulties without detection by opticians. We look at eye focusing, eye coordination, eye movement, binocular vision (eye teaming), visual perception skills and check the fixation point in both eyes, which goes beyond what Optometrist screens for.

 

The screening process must therefore differentiate between Dyslexia, a based language based disorder and Visual and Perceptual disorders, including hypersensitivities, which are essentially motor control (muscular) and/or processing of signals sent to the visual cortex, that receives,integrates, and processes visual information relayed from the retinas and the macular. The screening or recognition process is in three parts:

 

  • Observation
  • Questioning
  • Screening by Clinician

 

Similar symptoms must be differentiated, e.g. when a child reads d/b incorrectly, is it that they see the letters wrongly or do they decode them incorrectly?

 

Symptoms can include migraine headaches, light sensitivity, blurry vision, eye twitching, watery or dry eyes, dizziness, eye strain, sensitivity to light, eye floaters and eye spasms. When reading, learners may experience words appear jumbled, double vision, text compression, words or letters displacement, inversions / reversals, vibration, letters / words appear to change shape whilst viewing, text disappearance or bleaching colour of the text and intermittent blind-spots and intermittent blurring.

 

PECM is the only Centre in Myanmar and Asia where you can obtain therapeutic treatments and we are thrilled to be able to offer a complete service for Visual Processing Difficulties and Dyslexia.

What happens outside the classroom matters as much as what happens during the classroom because they are mutually inclusive. For example a learner with ADHD, may not have the required amount of sleep because they are gaming until the early morning hours.
 
This is quite common, as learners with ADHD often have sleep issues. As a learners turning up in a dynamic classroom where students are expected to listen, read, write, take notes, answer question papers, hand in homework and respond when called upon, the learner is ill prepared for this because of tiredness and or lethargy.
 
The teacher introduces a new concept which builds on existing concepts and the student realises they are hopelessly lost, because they were not paying attention to the previous lesson because they were tired, could not focus and did not complete the homework, which is practice in the concepts and ideas practiced in the classroom. The student panic's and may create a scenario to avoid work by getting sent out of the class. The students ends up falling further and further behind.
 
In a situation like this, parents play a huge role in monitoring bedtimes, ensuring the learner has a proper balanced diet, adequate sleep, and a balance between academic work and exercise.
 
However as International Educators, we know that many parents work away and children are supervised by nanny’s, drivers and other household staff who often are frightened of losing their jobs, so the children rule the roost. This perpetuates the problem and the learners continues to fall behind.
 
At PECM, our staff are culturally sensitive and aware of the nuances and habits of the Myanmar people and experienced in having these sometimes difficult but essential conversations with parents, who may not be aware that there is an issues affecting their child's success.
 
Because of our experience, we can provide culturally sensitive advice and advocacy for parents and careers who share responsibility for child development.
 
PECM provides this service because without the support of the parents, there is a higher probability that the learner will not be successful.
