Vision Therapy involves specific activities designed to improve eye movements, focusing, eye teaming, peripheral vision processing, depth perception, visual-motor skills, visualization, and vision perception.  The diagnosis and treatment of vision disorders and the use of lenses and prisms is prescribed by a Doctor of Optometry.

Occupational Therapy is a series of sensory-motor activities specifically designed to enhance gross and fine motor coordination, postural control, balance, equilibrium, bilateral awareness, gross motor planning, tactile awareness and tolerance, and eye-hand coordination.  Occupational therapy services are provided by an Occupational Therapist.
