Customer Testimonials

What a fantastic experience for three 'enthusiastic' children. Geoff was very patient & kind throughout.

Excellent Service would highly recommend

My son had vision therapy at Shaylers a few year ago. As a baby / toddler he was forever bumping into things , stumbling and tripping ,we were referred to have orthotics insoles in his shoes. This helped a little but as he started school it was pretty obvious there were other issues, he wasn't keeping up with his peers with his education. He really struggled to read , didn't remember things and generally didn't like school.
At 7years old I had him dyslexia tested privately as school were not really on board, this was our turning point!
We were recommended to Jeff as my son was only mildly dyslexic but there was a problem with his vision.
After vision therapy my son has made immense progress in all areas of his life. He is sitting his GCSEs next year and all of his predictions are above a pass!! He has excelled at sport he is representing Dorset at a development level.
He is happy, has great friends and is a typical teenager, I feel that if he hadn't had vision therapy he really would be a sullen teenager hating school still and really struggling to cope with life.
Thank you Jeff
