How Vision Affects Learning in the Classroom

How Vision Affects Learning – Child’s Visual Learning in the Classroom

It’s the time of year already for conferences. I feel like we were just shopping for new school supplies and scheduling hair cuts for class pictures. Yet fall is almost past us and my husband and I just finished conferences for my two children last week. Sitting in the classroom is always a little strange for me. It makes me realize that my children have these lives of their own and this is their daily “home away from home”. It also reminds me how vision affects learning and how much our children’s vision plays a part in their classroom experience. How do you know if your child’s vision is working to enhance his/her learning? Maybe it’s hindering your child’s learning. Let me briefly explain how vision affects learning and provide a few quick ways to flag it as a possible concern.
