Description:

Learning issues are becoming more prevalent in today's culture despite state and federal programs to combat the progression.  Delayed identification and intervention of vision issues plays an ever increasing role in problems in learning.  While addressing vision issues cannot fully solve all of the major problems in learning, the number of children who have unidentified vision issues is significant and must be more carefully addressed.
