August is Vision & Learning Month!

Why the Summer of Skills?

As technology becomes more and more central to our lives, the increased screen time means kids are starting school without basic skills like hand-eye coordination.

Childhood activities like using scissors, drawing, painting, and handwriting are not only a great way to unplug, they also build the vital visual skills that children need to succeed in school and life!

Take the Pledge to give your child a #SummerofSkills

you'll be surprised how easy it is to make a big difference!

Why "Vision & Learning"?

August was first declared Vision & Learning Month in 1995.  The overall goal of this national observance is to help increase awareness among parents and educators on the prevalence of undiagnosed or misdiagnosed vision problems.

What is Vision Therapy?

ONE OUT OF FOUR CHILDREN STRUGGLE WITH reading and learning unnecessarily because of undiagnosed vision problems, making vision therapy a simple and effective tool in helping children (as well as adults) overcome these obstacles to perform everyday tasks more easily and efficiently. But what is vision therapy and how does it work? It treats a wide range of conditions, including Amblyopia (or “lazy eye”), Learning-Related Visual Disorders (ADHD, Dyslexia), post traumatic rehabilitation (concussions, TBI) and occupational hazards (computer vision syndrome).
