green star for adult eventThe Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning

Sun, September 25, 2016, 2:00 pm

This program will address the large number of children who are struggling with learning, and compromised in ways most people are unaware of, because these little-known visual skills are not functioning properly. This can profoundly impact a child’s success in school, and in life. The symptoms of an unrecognized vision disorder can mimic other conditions, for which many children may be classified or medicated. Because of this, the potential for misdiagnosing the true cause of a child’s struggles is enormous. Vision, in all its complexity, is more than meets the eye. Author Wendy Beth Rosen will define what vision actually encompasses and why it is critical to the learning process. Far beyond 20/20, vision involves more than two-dozen skills that enable us to navigate through the world. Rosen is an education consultant specializing in vision-related learning problems. She is also a certified early childhood and elementary teacher with extensive classroom experience. This author talk is part of the library’s ongoing Health and Wellness Series.
