Special Education: Vision and Learning

Does your child seem bright, but struggle with reading, reverse words, numbers or letters and have difficulty copying from the board or a book? Is he or she disorganized and frustrated when studying visual information. Does he have sloppy handwriting, lose his place, or skip words?

Swindells is excited to welcome Dr. Eric Dukes, owner of Progressive Optometry in Ashland. Dr. Dukes started his career in Developmental Optometry in 1984 and began practicing in the Rogue Valley in 1993. He has worked doing Sport Vision therapy, vision development and disease detection. After helping hundreds of patients overcome visually related learning disorders, Dr. Dukes earned his Fellowship Degree in Neuro-Optometric Rehabilitation from the College of Optometrists in Vision Development.

Join Dr. Dukes as he shares how vision and learning are closely related. He will discuss:

  • What does “vision” really mean…and how does it allow us to understand our world?
  • Vision = Attention
  • How vision impacts learning
  • Signs and symptoms of vision related learning disorders
  • Resources for parents, teachers and health care professionals
