Schaumburg, Illinois (PRWEB) May 19, 2015
Dr. Ingryd Lorenzana, founder of Advanced Vision Center (AVC) in Schaumburg, is giving one child the opportunity of a lifetime by working with her to get his or her vision back on track through the “Gift of CogniViisionTM” program this summer. The program will award one student with a complimentary course of 24 CogniViiSIONTM therapy sessions provided exclusively at the Vision & Sensory Integration Institute (VSII).
Experiencing her own visual impairment problems as a young girl in Colombia, Dr. Lorenzana enrolled in a vision therapy program that helped her improve her academic abilities. Empowered by her experience, she developed CogniViiSIONTM, a unique treatment protocol that combines traditional vision therapy with the latest technology of neuroplasticity to activate and rewire visual neurons to increase visual processing speed and maximize learning.
To prepare students for the upcoming school year, she encourages teachers or parents to nominate children between the ages 7-17 at http://avconline.org/giftofcogniviision/ from now until May 29, 2015. Teachers or parents must fill out a symptom survey of signs and symptoms that they observe the child experiencing in the classroom.
Those nominated will receive a vision screening from AVC to ensure their symptoms are associated with a vision-related disorder that is treatable with CogniViiSIONTM therapy. Once selected, the winning child will receive a full comprehensive visual motor and visual processing evaluation (pre- and post-vision therapy).
A panel of judges will select the winner on June 5th to begin his/her 8-week CogniViiSIONTM therapy sessions. Upon completion, the student and his/her family will enjoy a celebration brunch with Dr. Lorenzana on Aug. 16.
