Meet our vision therapy team and get to know a little more about our therapists!
Susan graduated from the State University of New York College at Cortland and received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology. She was trained as a vision therapist by Drs. Randy Schulman and Juanita Collier, and has worked with patients since 2012.
Susan works with children and adults who are diagnosed with vision disorders including oculomotor dysfunction, accommodative difficulties and binocular disorders both strabismic and non-strabismic. Many of Susan’s patients benefit from therapy that includes visual perceptual and processing activities that help them to achieve their full developmental and intellectual potential.
Prior to working in the field of vision therapy, Susan served as a mentor to high school students who were enrolled in the A Better Chance program at Darien High School.
Jared studied Talmudic and Biblical Law for seven years in New Jersey and one year in Jerusalem. He decided to pursue a career in vision therapy after needing vision therapy as a child, and has been practicing for three years. He recently joined ECA and is excited to help patients of all ages.
Jared is currently pursuing his COVD certificate and is very passionate about making vision therapy fun for everyone. He considers himself to be a superhero, and is currently thinking of a good name. Suggestions are encouraged!
