What we're about

This group provides lively, participatory workshops hosted by Dr. Nancy Guenthner, O.D., for parents, teachers, and other professionals who deal with young people who are behind in reading, have trouble with comprehension or anyone for whom reading is a slow, laborious chore. The workshops covers vision problems that affect reading problems, or learning disabilities, as well as vision problems that mimic or imitate ADD and ADHD or which make it worse . A large number of children who reverse words or letters when reading or writing are diagnosed as dyslexic. Yet certain vision conditions that share identical signs mimic or complicate the condition. Can you tell the difference? Come learn to test for all these problems and what can be done. There will be ample time for Q&A at each workshop.

Cannot attend a workshop? Dr. Guenthner can come speak at your Meetup. Please contact us if your meetup group would be interested.

Does Your Child Have A Reading Problem? A Free Workshop

Aspire Vision Care

About 20 percent of children and adults have vision problems that make reading very difficult. Their ability to focus, aim, track or scan a line of print is not up to the hard work of reading. All these visual abilities, plus critical visual-perceptual skills must work well for reading to be fast, efficient and fully comprehended. In this workshop on vision and reading, you will learn about the many studies which state that certain vision problems should be treated first, before tutoring or special instruction. You’ll learn to test for and identify these problems yourself, plus have time to ask questions about the special people in your life.
