Went to see Dr Blackburn and got some interesting news. The plot thickens
Of course, I pass the standardized battery of tests but the therapist noted that I work at it much harder than most people.
He did a bunch of optometric evaluations and started checking me with prisms. After he finished putting in prisms, I brought up the fact that Dr. Seiderman had wanted to put me in yoked prisms. He started to try some yoked prisms on me and they seemed to improve things. I had some improvement in space but not a complete sense of 3 dimensions as I moved through his office suite.
Dr. Blackburn gave me a test on the visual midline. I am a bit off as I try to follow a pointer with a ball on the end.
We are wondering if I have visual midline shift syndrome. He is going to consult some colleagues.
I looked up visual midline shift syndrome and it has nothing to do with learning disabilities or adhd. It is generally lumped in with a brain injury or a disease like multiple sclerosis or chronic fatigue syndrome.
I am wondering if I need to do some sort of brain rehab and not just vision therapy. A neuropsychologist who deals with children just told me that she doesn't think that my problems are based on a learning disorder but are more organic.
