Session

What Does Vision Have to Do with ADHD and LD Anyway?
Saturday, Session 1, 9–10 a.m.

Vision is our most important sense. It directly impacts problem solving, movement, emotional well-being, personal relationships, and other aspects of daily living. In spite of neuroscientific advances in our understanding of vision, especially how vision problems can be identified and treated, it continues to be poorly understood by educators, clinicians, and the general public. In fact, most schools and clinicians continue to assess vision with only the 20/20 chart. Come learn, in a lively and fun format, how vision impacts attention and learning and how vision problems can be addressed.
