What is an Eye Tracking Problem?
In order to see properly, the eyes must move accurately, smoothly and quickly from one target to another target. When reading, the eyes must move from word to word the same way.
An eye movement problem is present when a child's visual system has not developed as expected. The result is that tracking is inaccurate, slow and may interfere with reading and school performance.
A child who has good decoding skills and a normal sight vocabulary may still experience problems when reading for comprehension. If so, a tracking problem is one possible factor that should be investigated.
Tracking problems actually have more of an impact on learning than vision problems. Unfortunately, most school vision screenings are only designed to detect vision problems. Very few school screenings even test for tracking disorders.
Problems and Symptoms Associated with Eye Tracking Problems
- Frequent Loss of Place or Skipping Lines when Reading
- Trouble Copying from the Teacher’s Board
- Using a Finger or Guide when Reading
- Normal Decoding Skills, but Poor Reading Comprehension
- Short Attention Span
