Far beyond 20/20, our extraordinary sense of vision involves more than two dozen lesser-known skills that help us navigate our way through life. When one or more of these skills are not functioning optimally, our capabilities are compromised in ways we are often not aware of. When this occurs in a child, their ability to learn and succeed in school is greatly impacted.
Vision-related learning problems affect 1 in 4 school-age children, yet knowledge about these types of vision problems is scant. Consequently, many children are not receiving the correct diagnosis and the help they need in order to succeed.
Many symptoms of vision-related learning problems can mimic those of other common conditions, such as AD/HD and dyslexia. There are, consequently, countless numbers of children who are classified as special education students or are medicated, or both, who may be wrongly diagnosed.
The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning: Why Millions of Learning Disabled Children Are Misdiagnosed puts these little-known yet correctable vision problems in the spotlight, making this life-changing knowledge available to everyone. This groundbreaking webinar will shed light on why so many students are still struggling in school despite remedial help, IEP’s, and medication.
