Vision & Success at School

Vision and Success at School

Workshops held on Wednesdays, 7 – 9 pm

See Calendar below for upcoming dates!

Every parent wants their child to be successful in school.  But as many as 25 percent of children in any classroom have vision problems that keep them from attaining their highest level of success!  Students spend more than 75 percent 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.  Here is a fun workshop that will give you practical tools to identify children who are having trouble with learning.

If you have a child whose school problems fit the checklist below, or you know someone with such a child, you are invited to attend this special workshop on vision and learning.  You’ll be glad you attended!
