Dyspraxia affects a child’s ability to be able to accurately and efficiently perform gross and fine motor tasks. It is also known as Developmental Coordination Disorder (DCD). Poor motor planning that require complicated movement or multiple movements in sequence can result in a noticeable lack of coordination of both the gross and fine motor skills. Both skills impacts the eye and vision issues associated with this disorder can affect the child’s ability to learn and function severely as it involves functional vision and visual processing skills.
A child with dyspraxia may show signs of dyslexia such as writing letters or number in reverse. They may also find word memory, spelling and comprehension difficult. This is because people with dyspraxia may regularly miss words while reading books or other texts making it a difficult and confusing task as when more words are missed, the sentences would start to make less sense.
Research has shown that in-office and at-home eye exercises both address the functional vision and vision processing problems which can help by improving the connection and coordination between the eyes and the brain.
