Impacts of Convergence Insufficiency
What causes Convergence Insufficiency?
Convergence Insufficiency is a lifelong condition that doesn't go away with age. It is most often visible in younger children, but many people are not aware they have Convergence Insufficiency until they are diagnosed and treated later in life.
Like most learning disabilities, CI can have a negative impact on people, especially school-aged children and teens. Children with CI have lower self esteem and often have negative feelings about school and their intelligence. They may work slower than their peers, which may lead them to mistakenly believe that they are less intelligent or not capable of taking advanced classes.
