If you’re a regular read of the blog you know that in addition to having patients complete a “Success Story” upon completion of optometric vision therapy (a key element we learned through our visionhelp group many years ago), we are just as interested in learning how the patients is faring one year after completing therapy. As I recall, the one year “post” concept was something that I learned awhile back from Dr. Ken Gibson through his processing skills program.
In today’s mail we received a copy of a one year narrative survey from a college student that was so touching, I just had to share it with you. Beautifully written in both form of hand and concept, it speaks for itself. In case you’re reading it on a small device, here is the text:
“I am so grateful for the improvements I’ve experienced in my reading, reading comprehension, and overall academic confidence. One year after vision therapy, I grew a love for reading for fun and achieved acceptance to graduate school. Thanks to the improvements in my reading capability, I will begin physical therapy school this summer with excitement to learn and give it all I’ve got! I look forward to being an advocate for my patients as my vision therapists were for me. Thank you!!”
