The good news keeps rolling here at the VDC! After years of being passed on because her acuity was great, Vivian finally arrived at the Vision Development Center, and received help. She gets to head in to her new school year better prepared for the academic challenges. This is Vivian’s story as told by Kristy (mom):
“I have so many thoughts running through my head. Where to start? Yesterday when Vivian was doing her testing again and she could read all the letters and keep he…r head still while following with her eyes, I wanted to cry tears of joy. I have suspected since kindergarten (she is now in 4th grade) something was slowing her down from her potential. She is a good, smart student, but I could tell reading was a struggle. However, everyone would pass her through (eye doctors) because she has 20/20 vision. I am so thankful for the caring staff and their special training for this program has helped our daughter tremendously.”
Graduation day was emotional for Miss Shawna. She will miss Vivian’s exuberant personality!
