Event Details

This session will walk you through the neuroscience behind the development of the visual system. It will explain the developmental steps of vision and how it relates to different age groups ECEs work with. In addition to theory about the visual system, participants will experience hands-on moments, and will learn a variety of activities that they can do with infants, toddlers and preschoolers to playfully support maturation of the teamwork of the eyes. The workshop will also include how irregularities in the visual system are often the cause of labels that kids will receive later in life such as ADHD, dyslexia, as well as sports avoidance, dysregulation, awkward social interactions and more.
