Opticians and Optometrists

by Robin Pauc on November 14th, 2017

I have a great deal of respect for both opticians and optometrists but I do have some concerns when I hear of practitioners treating children with dyslexia.

It is my opinion, and there is a great deal of research to back this up, that dyslexia is not a condition in its own right but a symptom and a symptom that always appears with other symptoms of developmental delay, most commonly dyspraxia and attention deficit. Treating just one of the symptoms of a Developmental Delay syndrome is not only most likely to be ineffectual but is also putting a child through unnecessary procedures and treatments. All of the behavioural and learning issues of childhood are brain based and unless the child has a condition of the eyes, should be treated by a practitioner with a background in neurology.
