    WHAT: Children’s Vision Workshop

    WHEN: February 5, 2019

    WHERE: McClain Lodge in Brandon, MS

    The Link Between Vision and Learning

    CEUs provided at no extra charge

    In 2015 the MOA began providing no-cost vision exams for children who failed the 3rd grade reading assessment. The results showed 88% of children who took advantage of those exams required some form of vision correction. Come learn how to spot vision issues in the classroom and school before they affect a child’s ability to learn!

    Agenda for February 5, 2019

    8:30 – 9:00 am Registration

    9:00 am – 12:00 pm Megan Sumrall Lott, OD and W.C. Maples, OD

    Uncovered: The Link Between Vision and Learning

    Dr. Lott and Dr. Maples will introduce you to different vision issues that affect children’s ability to learn, and how to spot them in the classroom. You will learn about visual orientation, ocular motor, binocular, accommodative and perceptual, all with anonymous cases from their files.

    12:00 – 1:00 pm Lunch

    1:00 – 3:00 pm Glenn Steele, OD

    The Vision and Learning Link: It Starts Early

    Vision is often made much more complicated than necessary. There are questions to be asked and tests to do that are very revealing to help determine if the issue is vision related or needs further diagnosis. The extensive use of digital devices is becoming a problem in developing attention. Options will be included for helping children become more efficient in things they do in life.

    3:00 pm Wrap Up and Safari Tour (RSVP required by January 29)
