How a Behavioural Optometrist can help

If your child is experiencing problems at school, a visit to a behavioural optometrist may be of benefit.

One in four children has vision problems that, without treatment, could affect their learning and enjoyment of school.

A behavioural optometrist can test for and treat difficulties such as:

  • Eye movement and tracking required for reading;
  • Hand-eye coordination;
  • Spatial perception; and
  • Visual information processing.

If a problem is detected, a behavioural optometrist may prescribe glasses, optical aides, visual therapy and/or eye strengthening exercises.

All of the optometrists at Aphrodite Livanes Eyecare Plus at Alexandra Hills, on Brisbane’s bayside, are behavioural optometrists. Find out more at: http://livanes.com.au/behavioural-optometry.

 

One in 12 Teenagers Self-Harm

One in 12 teenagers self-harm, with girls more likely than boys to deliberately hurt themselves.

In the first study of its kind, Australian researchers followed about 2000 Victorian students from age 15 to see how many self-harmed during adolescence and into their 20s. They found self-harm was most common among 15-year-olds, particularly girls and teenagers with symptoms of depression and anxiety.*

If your child is self-harming, don’t delay. Make an appointment with one of our psychologists. We specialise in working with adolescents and teenagers with a range of issues, including self-harm.
