Nearly 25% of all children have vision problems significant enough to affect their performance in school.
Mc Farland, WI (PRWEB) November 8, 2010
One of the biggest reasons for a learning problem also happens to be one of the most unknown.
It is estimated that nearly 25% of all children have vision problems significant enough to affect their performance in school. Yet many of these vision problems go undetected, resulting in poor grades, reading problems, behavior problems, and even misdiagnosed learning disabilities.
In two educational presentations, Dr. Kellye Knueppel, a developmental optometrist at The Vision Therapy Center in Wisconsin, will explain the types of undetected vision problems that can affect a child’s learning performance, and the close relationship between vision and learning.
“Undetected Vision Problems: Why They May Be Hurting Your Child’s Ability to Learn” will be presented Dr. Knueppel both in-person and through an online webinar. Dr. Knueppel has operated The Vision Therapy Center in Brookfield, and has improved the vision and lives of over 2,000 patients since 1995.
November 16th at 7:00 PM (in-person at The Vision Therapy Center)
November 17th at 7:00 PM (online webinar)
If your child or student has a learning problem and you would like to attend either presentation, register at http://www.thevisiontherapycenter.com/undetected.
