Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
I agree with your gut feeling......this "behavioral optometrist" and his treatment plan sounds like a lot of hokey to me too.
I recommend you stay away from this person and, if you are worried about your son's eyes and issues with tracking, take him to a pediatric ophthalmologist for a complete eye exam.
From what you have posted I, however, do not feel that any thing needs to be done. As long as this occasional jump from point of focus is not causing any problems, why mess with it?
Does this make sense to you?

Let me know if you have further questions.
Problem is, my son is in the sixth grade and reads at 3rd grade level, although he is recently improving greatly. Are there any therapies that deal with this, and how severe would it have to be to warrant an intervention? As I said, he deals with it and other than reading, he manages just fine visually. He excels at ice hockey for example.
Do kids outgrow this?(optometrist assured me they do not)
