Bal-A-Vis-X ( BAVX ) was originally developed for regular and special education students
in a K-12 school setting, where it was consistently found / find these BAVX benefits:-
1. Learning disabled students —– COGNITIVE INTEGRATION IMPROVES
2. Behaviorally disordered students—–“BEHAVIOR “ SETTLES “
3. ADD/ADHD —–IMPULSIVITY DECREASES AND ABILITY TO FOCUS INCREASES
4. Gifted students —–PHYSICAL COORDINATION IMPROVES AND STRESS HEADACHES DIMINISH
5. Regular education students —–ACADEMIC SUCCESS REQUIRES LESS EFFORT
6. Students with inadequate auditory skills who “ hear “ but don’t attend to the precise details of
A. Pronunciation: they can / do not distinguish among initial consonant sounds or
Digraphs, between one word’s ending and the next word’s beginning, among vowels sounds—
B. Verbal instructions: they grasp random pieces, seemingly by chance—
C. Discussion : they rarely follow the flow and often interrupt to make unrelated comments or ask superfluous questions—

For students whose visual acuity may be 20/20 yet whose vision is deficient in
A. Ocular motility ( tracking ) –eyes that float, stick, skip, stutter, or dart FLOW
B. Binocularity ( teaming )—eyes that squint, blink excessively, or produce extreme
Head/neck postures for near vision tasks WORK TOGETHER
C. Visual form perception ( discrimination of details ) –eyes that are careless about,
Forgetful of, or inattentive to differences and similarities NOTICE

For all students — gains in eye-hand coordination and subsequent growth in confidence, hence,
in earned self-esteem, are readily observable
