We interviewed Wendy Beth Rosen, author of The Hidden Link Between Vision and Learning: Why Millions of Learning-Disabled Children Are Misdiagnosed.
The symptoms of many vision problems can mimic disorders such as dyslexia and ADHD.
Vision-related learning problems affect 25% of school-age children, yet knowledge about these types of vision problems is scant.
There is a difference between vision and eyesight, and there’s more to vision than 20/20.
Wendy learned these facts when she found out that her own daughter fell below grade level in written expression.
It turns out that she had a previously undiagnosed condition that caused her to see double, which made it difficult for her to track lines of print on a page.
Please note that you will be asked to enter your email address at the 30-minute mark to finish viewing the video.
