Visual Impediments to Learning

The latest edition of Optometry and Visual Performance (OVP) contains an article I co-authored with Dr. Noella Piquette from the University of Lethbridge on Visual Impediments to Learning. It is an overview of the physiology, politics, and clinical aspects of visual functional deficits that impair children’s academic performance or affect their behaviour.

For those new to VT, this article and edition of OVP are great background information on why we need to pay attention to visual function, why not all behaviour concerns need a medical approach, and why vision is so much more than 20/20 at distance.
