On June 2, 2017 Dr. Fabian Tai, Developmental Optometrist, visited Oakwood to present to our team about the important role that vision and visual perception and processing plays on a child’s overall development. 80% of all our learning is through vision and 1 in 4 school age children have vision challenges that affect their school performance; yet upon a regular eye exam, they have perfect sight! Our staff discussed how vision develops and how we can support visual challenges and identify if students may need a referral for vision therapy. Oakwood is looking forward to working more with Dr. Tai as part of our multi-disciplinary team, to address all developmental areas for each student.
