Help your child be their best – Vision Blog

By specadm October 7 th, 2015

Vision is arguably the most important of the five senses as your child’s vision is responsible for 80% of all learning in their first twelve years*. Whether it is reading, writing, blackboard work or using a computer, your child’s eyes are constantly in use both in the classroom and on the sports field. Undetected vision problems can not only interfere with your child’s ability to learn, but can also impact their physical, social and emotional development as well. Left undiagnosed, vision disorders can also be mistaken for behavioural disorders such as ADD or ADHD. Difficulty with attention span, restlessness and frustration both in and out the classroom can stem from the inability to process the volume of visual information required for learning and everyday tasks.
