The Importance Of Vision & Learning
In the United States alone, 1 in 5 children are diagnosed with learning and attention issues each year.
That's an astonishing statistic, and one that causes frustration and distress for children who end up feeling shame, fear and anxiety related to school and schoolwork as a result. Their parents, too, become desperate for answers and help as they try to understand why their smart, curious student withdraws from schoolwork or acts up in the classroom.
What's more astonishing, however, is how many children are misdiagnosed from the start.
As many as 1 in 4 children have a vision problem that affects learning, and yet because many of them have never had a comprehensive optometric exam outside of school, their symptoms are attributed to disorders like ADHD or dyslexia. Those symptoms, however, can overlap a great deal with those that indicate a vision problem, including:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Rereading or skipping lines of text
- Difficulty recognizing words
- Poor handwriting
Worse, many children are needlessly medicated for what appear to be behavioral or attention-related disorders when vision challenges are at the root of their struggles in the classroom.
But you can solve this by giving your child a comprehensive vision screening. It may be able to help many students and families catch deficiencies far earlier - and more accurately - so that kids can spend less time struggling with their confidence and school performance, and more time learning and growing. Getting a QEEG Brain scan can be important as well. It can help identify problem areas in the brain, especially in the Occipital lobes which are responsible for visual processing. If there is an issue with brain activity there, it will also impact a child's learning abilities. We encourage you to look into a QEEG brain scan today.
