The Link Between Vision and Learning

The pediatrician examines your child and reports that she has passed the eye test. The school nurse gets the same results. But, when your child reads, she keeps losing her place, skips words or lines, and she cannot remember the words that she just read on the previous page.

What is the problem?

Two-thirds of all input into the brain originates from the eyes.

Eighty percent of what a child learns in the classroom is obtained through the visual system.

Vision is the dominant sense for learning. If the visual system is inefficient, it can impede the ability to learn and comprehend what is seen and read.

What can you do?

Early detection can save years of struggling. Your child may never learn to enjoy reading if the problem is not solved early in their life.
