Free Holistic Health Webinar on Children's Vision and Learning

Nov 02, 2016 08:58PM

Thermographic Diagnostic Imaging/Health Through Awareness will host a free holistic health webinar, presented by Wendy Beth Rosen—an education consultant specializing in vision-related learning problems, metacognition and environmental education—from 7 to 8 p.m., November 16. The webinar will be based upon her groundbreaking book The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning: Why Millions of Learning Disabled Children Are Misdiagnosed.

Far beyond 20/20, our extraordinary sense of vision involves more than two dozen lesser-known skills that help us navigate our way through life. When one or more of these skills are not functioning optimally, our capabilities are compromised in ways we are often not aware of.  “When this occurs in a child, their ability to learn and succeed in school is greatly affected,” says Rosen. “Vision-related learning problems affect one in four school-age children, yet knowledge about these types of vision problems is scant. Consequently, many children are not receiving the correct diagnosis and the help they need in order to succeed in school.”

Many symptoms of vision-related learning problems can mimic other conditions, leading to countless numbers of children who are classified as special education students or are medicated (or both), who may be wrongly diagnosed. Few people are aware that a breakdown in the visual system can also be at the core of a learning disability. At present, visual skills are not routinely and comprehensively examined to determine if a deficit is present and interfering with a child’s capacity for learning.
