Event: When AD(H)D Just Doesn’t ADD Up! Free Workshop


Event Date: June 06, 06:15pm

Event Details:

 

You are invited to attend  a special vision workshop  

 

  Many doctors, educators and parents express   growing concern at the increasing number of young people who are being put on medications for Attention Deficit Disorder, often diagnosed only  by symptoms.

   Research shows children with a common, correctable eye teaming problem are 3 times more likely to be diagnosed as having AD(H)D than children without the visual disorder.

 

Many signs of A.D.(H.)D. are similar to those for vision deficits.

Here are some indicators that point to vision:

  • Attention span becomes shorter during close-up work
  • Restless when facing work that requires prolonged near vision
  • Disturbs others when class work involves reading or writing
  • Concentrates well on video games, but not on reading, writing or mathematics
  • Seems compelled to touch everything
  • Bumps into things, trips or falls instead of stepping over, around steps, carpet edges   or objects
  • Hates to read, but likes being read to by others
  • Takes medication, but still has problem concentrating whenever near vision work is required

 

Featuring Dr. Monika Spokas, Developmental Optometrist

   In this workshop, you’ll learn how to distinguish visual problems that mimic or complicate AD(H)D, as well as what can be done to correct these problems.
