Did you know many kids that struggle with the ability to focus their eyes have abnormal development of postural reflexes? Postural Reflexes are reflexive actions that should develop in the first year of life. These reflexes help us keep our head level and stable in every day life. The problem is many kids with learning difficulties don’t develop these reflexes well.
The under development of these reflexes and resulting lack of control of their head make it very difficult for the child to stabilize their eyes. When the eyes are not stable they can not work together. When they can’t work together they can not focus!
