GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Neurocore specializes in brain based diagnostics and treatments that help children and adults focus, improve sleep and manage stress better. Their work with children and adults with ADHD has lead to improved performance in schools and the workplace without the use of medication. Another area they have seen big improvement with patients is reading.
As children are getting towards the end of the school year and gearing up for summer reading programs, it's important to understand the physiological aspects of learning to read. Complex muscle control is very important when it comes to your child's reading. Children should be relaxed with their eyes directed slightly outward and Maintain a side to side, sweep motion, while maintaining the same distance between the eyes.
When visiting Neurocore for an assessment, one of the tools that they use is called a Visagraph. This machine determines muscle readiness for reading by testing the positing of the eyes, testing regression and reading speed. The tool will print out valuable feedback to show if your child's eyes are tracking with text and if their ocular motor skills need to be corrected. Based on the results, a treatment program will be suggested to strengthen your child's skills.
