December 7: The Vision and Learning Link: Students spend more than 75% of school time doing intense visual work less than a foot from their eyes. Vision is an often overlooked component of learning and reading problems. Here is a fun workshop that will give you practical tools to help children who are having trouble with learning.
You are invited to attend this special workshop for parents, educators and professionals. You will learn 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 and how and why vision development therapy works.
Dr. Elisa Beck is a developmental optometrist and specializes in working with children and adults with learning related visual issues, natural vision improvement and optometric vision training. She will present this free workshop on Sunday, December 7, 2008, from 1:00-2:30 PM at 4203 Murray Avenue in Pittsburgh, PA. Please RSVP to 412-491-0303.
