“Seeing Success: How Identifying and Treating Undetected Vision Problems Can Improve Reading and Learning” Presented by Valerie Frazer, Developmental Optometrist
Does your child struggle in school or avoid reading?
Is homework a battle or take twice as long as it should?
Does your child lose their place when they read, have poor comprehension or poor handwriting?
One in four children lack the visual skills necessary to succeed in school and children labeled as ADHD or Learning Disabled are 3x more likely to have one of these treatable visual dysfunctions that can interfere with learning. Most people think that 20/20 vision is enough. They don’t realize that there are 17 visual skills needed to succeed in reading, learning, sports and in life and seeing ‘20/20’ is just one of those visual skills. Dr. Frazer will discuss when a child should have their vision checked and symptoms of common visual dysfunctions that can interfere with learning or lead to poor behavior. She will also discuss simple ways to make things easier at school/home and current research on treatment options.
