Did your child fall behind as the school year progressed? Did s/he come close to being retained? Perhaps his or her grades did not reflect the intelligence you know is there. Do feel that despite all your attempts to help, something is interfering with your child’s learning? 1 in 4 children have a specific vision problem which interferes with learning, and optometrists who test for and treat the problem can help. If vision is the problem, there is help. You may be able to start the school year with a new outlook and spare your child from the pain of falling behind in school.
