The following articles were written for YorKids magazine to help parents understand more about vision, how important good visual skills are for their children, and what parents can do to develop their children’s visual skills at home.
The first article busts the myth about 20/20 vision. 20/20 just means clear eyesight, and is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to visual skills. The following articles explain how crucial visual skills are to success in learning, rules for good visual hygiene, and how optical illusions, crafts, and games can help develop visual skills.
The edition of YorKids that came out just before school started, describes exercises you can do with your child to prepare them for going back to school. Finally, there is an article containing vision therapy success stories written from the child’s perspective.
