    hmm..no feedback, just curious to see what other's say.  I have heard very good things on the hippotherapy.  What is the vision therapy exactly?

    I just copied and paste it from the clinic website:

    I am full time homeschooling now and I observed that he have sometimes problem identifying "n" and "h" or read "s" and "c" but if I asked him to write the word, he'll usually write it with no problem. Last January, he had his first eye exam and the result was "mild astigmatism" - doesn't need glasses yet. Another homeschooler from the therapy clinic suggested to have my son evaluated by the vision therapist. So, I made the appointment 2 months ago (it will take 2 visits to complete the evaluation). I will keep you guys posted. I was just hoping that someone who already had experience who wants to share. I am a little nervous.

    I understand:)  My son is in OT, PT, Speech, Feeding, and ABA therapies.  It's hard but you can do this mama!  What is your child's diagnosis?
