Doctor visits seem to fill up much of a child’s first several years: check-ups, shots, sick visits, and more.

The gift-giving time of year is upon us once again. If you haven’t found the perfect gift yet I do have a few ideas for you. I am often asked about learning toys, games and activities that are good for children and their development. As I sit watching the snow today I thought it the perfect time to list a few great learning toys and games that help children develop critical skills for learning and are fun at the same time. I have listed them by category below. There are many more out there but these are a few of my favorites.
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 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.
