The Vision and Learning Link

Students spend more than 75% of school time doing intense visual work less than a foot from their eyes, but not all students’ vision can handle that intense workload. Thus, vision is an often overlooked component of learning and reading problems.

Common symptoms of reading related vision problems include:

  • Takes hours to do a few minutes of homework
  • Skips words or lines while reading
  • Often overlooks or misreads short words
  • Rubs eyes, red eyes, or gets headaches in the afternoon
  • Poor concentration when reading
  • Cannot comprehend material that has just been read; must reread to obtain meaning
  • Falls asleep or gets tired when reading
  • Slow-hesitant reading even when rereading material
  • Attention span shortens when doing intense close work
  • Must use finger or marker to hold place when reading

You are invited to attend a free workshop for parents, educators and professionals

  • How to identify children whose vision restricts learning
  • How the way children “see” the world affects their behavior
  • How to build school performance by enhancing vision
  • How to perform assessments and tests of vision skills
  • How and why vision development therapy works
