From a patient’s family:

In order for one to understand how grateful I am to have found the solution to my son’s problem, I have to tell the entire story. My son had been having serious issues with skipping words when writing and spelling. The teachers at his school stated that he may have dysgraphia. They weren’t particularly concerned in correcting it at the moment, since he was in 3rd grade, and writing was not going to be significant on the 3rd grade STAAR test.

With a lot of advocating, the school brought someone in to help him write when the class had writing exercises. Unfortunately, he didn’t qualify for a 504/IEP. I was afraid that the ‘helper’ who was working with him was doing most of the work for him because he was unable to reproduce the work that he was doing at school with the helper at home.

I took my son to a writing tutor, two OT’s, and had a consultation with a psychiatric neurologist (charging $3000 for a diagnosis only, no therapy only a referral to a therapist and then more money). The writing tutor and the OT just flat out could not help him. In fact, one OT just gave up. At our last visit, she gave me some exercises to do with him and we were left alone to figure out the problem.

For the beginning of 4th grade, I decided to put him in a private school with smaller classroom sizes (15 students). The teacher worked closely with me regarding my son’s writing issues. One day she called me and said that she thought something was wrong with his vision because whenever he read he tilted his head a little bit too much. I expressed this to the second OT and she said that witnessed the same thing. She advised me to take him to vision therapy.

I researched and found Dr. Fong in Sugar Land. His staff was amazing and gave me a briefing of what to expect. Dr. Fong took him as a patient and did testing. He found that my son had deficiencies in his spatial ability. He also discussed with me that when my child was reading, the words appeared as if they are jumping around the page. There were a few other deficiencies as well. I decided to go with Dr. Fong after looking into and trying many avenues.

Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. This was a process and in the beginning and even toward the middle I was wondering if this was going to work. I trusted the process and we kept pushing. Eventually, I saw his spelling improve. Approximately 3-4 months into treatment, his teacher called me and said that he was writing fluently with no hesitation.

Here are a couple of things to note…my son, although he can write manually, he does better with the keyboard. The teacher allows him to bring his keyboard to class. As far as focus, the school has allowed him to wear headphones with music to block out distractions when he has to do assignments in class. He’s always been bright and had good grades. Now, I can see him becoming more independent since vision therapy with Dr. Fong.

I am forever grateful to Dr. Fong and his amazing staff!
