Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that affects attention, focus, and hyperactivity. It is estimated that ADHD affects 5-7% of children. There is no one cause for ADHD, but it is believed to be due to a combination of genetic and environmental factors.

Treatment options for ADHD vary depending on the severity of the disorder. Some treatments include medication, therapy, and behavior modification. Vision therapy can help children with ADHD improve their Attention Span and Concentration.

When it comes to vision therapy, there are a few different types that can be used depending on the child’s age and diagnosis. One type of vision therapy is binocular rivalry. This type of therapy uses two images that compete for the child’s attention. 

The first image is presented to one eye while the second image is presented to the other eye. The goal is to increase the amount of time that the child spends looking at the second image. This type of therapy can be used in children as young as 3 years old. 

Another type of vision therapy that can be used with children with ADHD is orthoptics. Orthoptics uses glasses or contact lenses to improve vision.
