Vision

An evaluation was done of Little Kenny's vision by his vision teacher. As we'd suspected, Little Kenny is pretty much blind in his left eye. (I'd noticed all along that he only uses his right eye to use his tablet, etc.) His right eye, with his glasses on, is 20/200.

He's doing well at school. His vision teacher is teaching him Braille and how to use a Braille writer. His regular teachers are teaching him reading, counting, etc. They said he's caught up on everything, except for all the fine motor stuff, which is probably due to his vision problems. (I so can relate, as some of my fine motor skills leave a lot to be desired!) His Orientation & Mobility specialist is teaching him techniques for getting around without help and also how to use a white cane.

School has been very good for Little Kenny and I'm happy to see him doing so well. I enjoy all of the arts and crafts he makes at school and brings home.

Sounds like he has excellent teachers, is this a public school? He looks great, adorable little boy.

Glad that he is doing well in school. You should be able to get him disability. If not fight for it. I am sure a tv station would love to hear how your son can't get disability but kids with ADHD can. I do hope you can get some additional help.

Great to hear him doing so well at school and hope he will continue to do so in the near future. He was a gift from God.
