Visual Skills Program

Remedial, Developmental or Enrichment

We do not “see” with our eyes or our brain; rather vision is the reception and processing of visual information by the total person. Since 66% of all information we receive is visual, it becomes clear that efficient visual skills are a critical part of learning, working and even recreation. An individualized program is offered for the client who wishes to enhance their visual skills.
