NFL Cardinals' Wide Receiver Larry Fitzgerald Promotes Vision Therapy
Date:7/31/2009

Johnson, a developmental optometrist in Chicago, Illinois, diagnosed the vision problem and the appropriate treatment.

Fitzgerald went through vision therapy under his aunt's guidance, Dr. Stephanie Johnson-Brown, who is currently the executive director of the Plano Child Development Center, a not-for-profit vision care service corporation which was co-founded by her father, Dr. Johnson, in 1959, which specializes in vision education and the identification and remediation of vision development problems in children and adults.

According to a report from the New Jersey Commission on Business Efficiency of the Public School, "Undiagnosed and untreated vision-related learning problems are significant contributors to early reading difficulties and ultimately to special education classification."

"There is abundant evidence that the academic abilities of children with learning problems that were the result of underlying vision problems improve after receiving vision therapy," Dr. Carol Scott, President of COVD states. "It is important to understand that vision therapy treats vision problems that interfere with reading and learning; we do not treat dyslexia or other learning disabilities."

"It is unfortunate that many children struggle for years despite tutoring and other special services before their parents find a developmental optometrist," Scott continues. "Parents continually share their frustration with us that they wish they had found us sooner."

Fitzgerald is joining COVD this year to help spread the word that 20/20 is NOT perfect vision and that if your children are struggling with reading you need to take them to see a developmental optometrist. You can visit COVD's Web site to find a developmental optometrist near you.
