THE ROLE YOUR CHILD’S VISION PLAYS IN THE CLASSROOM

In the classroom, much of the information taught is given visually.  This means that many young students who are struggling with learning their course materials are simply having difficulty seeing the board. Poor vision can cause many problems in the classroom, and understanding those difficulties can be a challenge.  Here are a few of the main challenges poor vision can cause in the classroom.

DIFFICULTY READING THE BOARDdownload (7)

One of the biggest difficulties poor sight in the classroom can cause is difficulty with reading the board.  If your child can’t see or read the board they will likely have trouble understanding the material covered in class, and have further difficulty recalling that information when it is time for them to do their homework.

HEADACHES AND EYE STRAIN

Another problem with poor vision is that it can lead to headaches and eye strain. This can also affect your child’s success in the classroom because pain and strain can seriously decrease your child’s ability to concentrate in class. If your child is complaining of headaches while they are in school, it may be a good idea to check their vision.

PROBLEMS READING HOMEWORK

And, even if your child isn’t having trouble reading the board at school, they may have trouble reading materials up close.  Although this is rarer than nearsightedness, many children struggle with reading because their eyes cannot focus up close. If your child is doing poorly on their reading homework, you should consider visiting an eye doctor to analyze their vision and improve their capacity to succeed.

VISION IS IMPORTANT

Your child’s ability to see is an important part of their success in education.  So, if you feel your child is having difficulties with their vision, be sure to get their eyes checked and get them the corrective lenses they need! photo credit: Eje Gustafsson via photopin cc
