A vision-reading link?

About 25% of children and adults have vision problems that make reading very difficult.  Their ability to focus, aim, track or scan a line of print is not up to the hard work of reading.  All of these visual abilities, plus critical visual-perceptual skills, must work well for reading to be fast, efficient and fully comprehended.  The good news is these vision problems are correctable!

In this workshop on vision and reading, you will hear about correctable vision problems that can even stand in the way of tutoring or special instruction.  You’ll also hear about treatments designed to remediate vision difficulties, improving the ability to read and learn.  Plus, there will be time to ask the doctor specific questions about people in your life.
