on July 27 appears to cobble together outdated research and vision science, such as the controversial Irlen lens, in an attempt to discredit optometric vision therapy, according to prominent optometrists.            The policy statement, developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics, Section on Ophthalmology; American Academy of Ophthalmology; American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology and Strabismus;  and American Association of Certified Orthoptists, sheds doubt on the claim that vision therapy treats dyslexia – a claim that vision researchers and clinicians have not made for decades. It also ignores the evidence of ...

Visual Skill and How It Affects Reading and Learning
Many visual skills are required for competent and successful learning. The lack of these skills doesn't CAUSE learning disabilities...however, they can mask as ADHD, Dyslexia, Learning Disabilities, and Behaviour Disorders. Many children get treatment for ADHD when, in fact, they have vision problems. More than a few struggle in remedial settings... with little success...because their reading and learning approaches look like learning disabilities. Their skills are just like those of children who really do have learning disabilities. Because of that, it would be wise to check out children who are suspected of this and ... market research, surveys and trends
What is Phonics? Do Children Need Phonics…to Learn to Read ...
Teaching phonics takes time. From our family’s experience, and from studies throughout a century, phonics is worth the time!  While phonics is just one aspect of learning to read, it can be a strong springboard to reading well.   Our family is tremendously grateful to Bonnie L. Dettmer for showing so many of us how to teach phonics! What is phonics, anyway? Back when our family started homeschooling (18 years ago) I had only a vague idea about phonics.   I knew that phonics was connected to reading and that there was some “fuss” or controversy about it.  That’s all I knew.   In teaching my child to read I stumbled upon phonics. ... market research, surveys and trends

Ring Festival passes 'event baton' to Getty for 'Pacific Standard Time'
After sipping wine and munching grilled fruit in the J. Paul Getty Museum’s entrance hall Wednesday, about 200 members of the Los Angeles arts scene witnessed the business at hand: a literal passing of the baton so that arts-impresarioship as a community-wide undertaking continues. The passer was Los Angeles Opera, orchestrator not only of its own just-concluded production of Richard Wagner’s epic “Ring” cycle, but of the Ring Festival that sprang up around it, as 122 cultural organizations hitched themselves to the Wagnerian wagon and mounted their own exhibitions, performances, film screenings and talks, discussions and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
As a person working within the mental health profession, I once challenged colleagues to examine the work that they do without using the terms 'mental illness', 'treatment', 'diagnosis' or the like. I could see that initially this was a challenging exercise, however the key terms that came forward were: conflict resolution, mediation, coaching, guiding. These terms become important when we realize that those who have been labeled as seriously distressed and 'mentally ill' are individuals who have undergone conflict in their lives. These individuals are seeking a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
