Vision therapy? Worth mentioning?
My son will be applying to colleges this fall 2019. We live in NJ, mostly applying to OOS schools. Stats, 3.8 Unweighted, SAT 1210, 620 Math, tons of ECs, community service, leadership and paid working experience. He has an eye tracking d/o called convergence insufficiency. It was diagnosed in 3rd grade due to a major reading delay. He was compensating by memorizing words until it was formally diagnosed.He had 2 years of aggressive eye therapy and he is what his doctor called about 85% better/cured. The only problem he still has due to his convergence insufficiency is reading slower than his peers. It takes him longer to read. He does not take honors or AP English due to this. He is a math kid with honors and AP math classes. Is this worth mentioning on the application in special circumstances? Hard to tell because there are so many kids who have true circumstances that should be reported and I don’t want him to ruin his chances by adding this detail. However his top reading SAT 590 which has a lot to do with his slow reading. Thanks!!6 replies
