Dr. Robert Fox, OD, FCOVD will present"THE HOMEWORK WARS” Workshop at the Sidney Albert Albany Jewish Community Center at 340 Whitehall Road, Albany, NY 12208 on January 7th, 2019 at 6:30 PM.
Does it take hours for your child to complete 20 minutes of homework? Perhaps his or her grades do not reflect the intelligence you know is there. Do you feel that despite all of your attempts to help, something is interfering with your child's learning? If any of the symptoms below sound like your child, please join us at this informative workshop. If vision is the problem, there is help and you are not alone. 1 in 4 children have a specific vision problem which interferes with learning.
