Developing healthy visual-motor skills is more difficult in our increasingly technical world. Our visual experiences can be overwhelmed by the bombardment of artificial sights and lights that did not exist in our ancestors' lives. We spend more time indoors, overexposed to unnatural colors, movement, and imagery. More time is spent sitting, rather than DOING in a naturally lighted environment. This lifestyle has taken a toll on the eyes of millions.

But how can we reverse these problems?


Provides a quick overview of the development of vision

Includes a checklist of warning signs of vision problems

Explains the importance of integrating ALL the senses in the development of good visual skills

Offers more than 40 practical, fun activities to help improve visual skills
