Overview

Poor vision, if unnoticed and untreated, can dramatically reduce a child's school achievement. While it is easy to blame underachievement on a variety of causes, the real cause may be directly related to vision development. Strong vision is much more than being able to see the blackboard from the back row. Solid visual skills that underlie brain learning are developed through a variety of activities that are less and less a part of children's lives thanks to TV and video games. Eyes for Learning explains how parents and teachers can spot a vision-related learning problem and how to treat it. Dr. Antonia Orfield provides answers about referrals, required vision tests, and vision-improvement techniques. The bottom line is that good vision is a learned skill that is best developed by the practices explained in this book. Understanding these explanations can go a long way in saving a child from failure in school.

Editorial Reviews

Lara Polsky Gillease
A must read for educators and parents alike. Dr. Orfield's highly readable guide presents ground-breaking solutions to common learning problems and is supported by substantial data. Her holistic common sense ... is not just about vision but also how vision is interrelated with learning.
Optometry and Vision Development - Leonard J. Press
Orfield is to be congratulated for presenting cutting edge material in a professional manner. This is a gem of a book that should be read cover-to-cover by parents, educators, and all professionals entrusted with guiding children’s development.
Scitech Book News
[Orfield] gives teachers, assessors and parents methods to determine whether a child has a visual learning disability and where to turn for confirmation and treatment. She also gives advice about having proper facilities and activities that will enhance vision for affected and normal children.
