    Event Description:
    The diagnosis Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is ever-more common in the U.S., while in other countries it is rarely found. Could it be that a syndrome of behaviors is being called A.D.H.D. when it is really something else? Could it be that mild "A.D.H.D." may include other problems that make the condition appear worse than it really is? And, what if the rare, pure A.D.H.D case were made even worse by a condition which was overlooked and which doesn't respond to drugs. There is a specific set of visual limitations which result in reduced academic performance. Ninety percent of juvenile delinquents have such problems. About 1 in five children in school have visual deficiencies that make it very hard to concentrate on near vision tasks--reading, writing , math and computers, which fill the school day. If focusing up close is difficult, if the eyes will not converge easily up close or will not accurately track or scan a line of type, the child will have problems with learning. These problems are common among people labeled as A.D.H.D. Children may be medicated unnecessarily. Marginal A.D.H.D. "cases" might misbehave and be labeled a trouble-maker. Children often live within the limits of their labels, such as day-dreamer, trouble-maker, slow or "dumb." Come learn how to separate vision problems from A.D.H.D. For parents, teachers, professionals, counselors and all who deal with children that exhibit these behaviors.
