A popular myth about dyslexia is that it is a vision problem. Dyslexia is neurologically based, and has nothing to do with vision. A child could have acuity problems AND dyslexia, but problems with eyesight do not cause dyslexia. If your child is having difficulty seeing the board or reading, it is certainly a good idea to have a thorough eye exam. However, "vision therapy" will not cure dyslexia. Beware of any doctor who makes that claim.
