Binocular Vision: Eye coordination/eye teaming was inadequate and is now normalized! Apparently, my eye was turning outward.
- Visual Memory Up!!! Went from the 9th percentile to the 85th percentile. Yay! This means what I see I can remember. (Note: According to George Mason University, apparently meditation can improve visual memory. Deity Yoga where you zero in on an image of their deity, conjuring up a vivid, three-dimensional mental picture of it while honing in on the deity's emotions and environment apparently helps your visual memory)
- Visual Form Perception: TVPR-S Form Constancy went from 63rd to 95th percentile.
- Eye tracking Skills: Developmental Eye Movement Test--Horizontal Tracking Speed went from 20th Percentile to 85th Percentile
- Laterality Direction: Gardner Recognition -- I pass
Convergence insufficiency is still not where it should be. I still have some problems with focusing and accomodation.
We are also working on audio-visual integration by doing some drills with a bunch of different colored shapes. Marianne calls out the sequence and I arrange them. I do mediocrely 70% on a computer test of audio-visual integration where the dots are beeped in different sequences but I think I am gaming the system by hearing part of the sequence and selecting the best choice out of multiple choice. When I did a similar test with the audiologist, Maxine Young which revolved around describing the sequence verbally, I failed it royally with a big fat 0% correct.
These tests are particularly valuable for certain populations with the following problems:
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Dyslexia, Dyslexic
- Gifted Learning Disabled
- Nonverbal LD (NLD)
- Special Education
- Unspecified Learing Disorders
- Basketball Players
- Baseball Players
- Tennis Players
- Football Players
- Hockey Players
The athletic eye: Improved sports performance through visual training
