Visual Skills and Their Impact on Learning

Webinar Length (Hours):



Kim Wiggins, OTR/L


Visual Skills and Their Impact on Learning

Research shows that 80% of all learning in school settings is acquired through vision, and unfortunately, there is an increase in focus and attention issues in the classroom that can be linked to visual challenges. If children have difficulty using their eyes, they will often give up or work twice as hard as other students, resulting in frustration and a lack of motivation. Children are often misdiagnosed with attention deficits without looking at possible visual insufficiencies. This 3-hour webinar includes easy-to-understand explanations of the visual system, a variety of FREE resources, and examples of implementation strategies for clinicians to utilize in practice.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Compare the impact of vision on reading versus writing.
  2. Differentiate Vision Therapy and Occupational Therapy.
  3. Compare and contrast visual screenings.
  4. Analyze the primary components of the visual system.
  5. Examine visual strategies and exercises that can be done at home, during therapy sessions, or in the classroom.
