Vision Therapy and Therapists in Minnesota - FAQ

When I tell people about Sweeties' vision therapy,  I get a lot of follow up questions, but most include "Does my child need Vision Therapy?"  "What Vision Therapy is available near me?"  "Are there Vision Therapists in Minnesota" and "How much does it cost?

Here are some of those answers.

Does my child need Vision Therapy?
I am not sure, but I would recommend any parent whose child is struggling in reading to get a full-comprehensive vision exam by a qualified vision therapist.

What Vision Therapy is available near me?
Most likely if you are in the USA, yes.  See the bottom of the page for a link that you can use to search your own county, zip or state.

Are there Vision Therapists in Minnesota?
YES!  I pulled a list from a great resource and listed them below.  If you have seen any of these providers, can you please leave a review in the comments?

How much does it cost?  Is it covered by insurance?
Sometimes yes, but it isn't for us.  It is about $150/session and the length of treatment depends on your specific vision needs.  I was able to use our FSA money, but it is quite expensive and totally worth it to help my child see and learn easier.
