Vision and Learning

Many factors contribute to a child’s ability to achieve their academic potential. Good eyesight is key. It is estimated that vision accounts for as much as 80% of the learning process for a child. Reading, writing, chalkboard work, and computer use are among the visual tasks students perform daily. A child's eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play, and his or her education as well as participation in extracurricular activities such as sports and the arts rely on healthy vision.


Most of the learning done in school is dependent on VISION. If a child has to struggle to see, they are going to struggle to learn. Often children are misdiagnosed with learning disabilities such as ADHD or dyslexia.

Do you know your child is bright but feel that they aren't learning or performing up to their potential?

Does your child exert a lot of effort to keep up in school?

Sometimes these children are just referred to as lazy when really their visual skills are deficient and hindering their learning ability. Vision and learning are directly connected!
A major portion of what we learn is taken in through the visual system. Vision is a contributing factor to an individual’s ability to attend and respond to classroom instruction.

DOES YOUR CHILD…

Avoid reading?
Complain of headaches?
Exhibit poor handwriting?
Have difficulty catching a ball?
Have difficulty completing work on time?
Have a turned or lazy eye?
Lose their place when reading?

Many vision problems can be corrected or helped by the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses. A vision therapy programme may also be needed to help develop or enhance visual skills.

What to do next?

It may not seem the first answer you come to but, getting your child's eyes tested is just the first step in finding a solution. It will tell us many things about how your child might use their eyes to see and what they see. Using this information we can decide together the best way forward for your child. It might mean them wearing glasses or undertaking a programme of vision training, or a mixture of many things. We promise to treat your child as an individual and put together a unique programme that best suits them.

Call now to arrange a test and/or a vision assessment and we can all work together to improve the learning outcomes and experiences of your child.
