Lesley Barker, vision therapist, educator and 17-year veteran homeschooler, knows first-hand how children with learning-related visual challenges can struggle. When she was homeschooling, two of her own children had struggles due to learning-related visual issues. One child could have been assisted with vision therapy had the family known, in a timely way, how to identify the problem. The second child was assisted through a program of vision therapy.

In this creative and carefully prepared resource, Lesley helps families understand how visual skills and learning are related, how visual skills can be strengthened and improved at home, and where and when to turn for professional help.

Each book in this three-book series features a wealth of graded Pre-K through 8th Grade activities to introduce students and their families to learning-related visual skills and help them build and strengthen their skills. Parents can incorporate these activities into their own curriculum and into daily life. For students who have deficits or delays in one or more learning-related visual skill, the activities will help to identify and begin to address these deficits while simultaneously helping students achieve academic objectives. Reading and learning will become more efficient, accurate, comfortable and fun…for every student!

Each e-Book in the Eye Can Too! Read series is uniquely designed for homeschool families and features:

  • Specific activities for your core curriculum lessons/hours. Simultaneously, your children involve and improve their learning-related visual skills in specific ways.
  • Explanations of the visual skills related to learning - helping parents identify whether visual skill deficits or delays are perhaps at the root, or contributors, to a child’s learning challenges.
  • Specific tips on how to observe your students’ performance while they do these activities.
  • Suggestions for what to do when parents observe certain behaviors.
  • Information for parents about professionals whose assistance may be indicated should the difficulties they suspect in their children be based on how they approach these learning-related visual activities.

What Homeschool Parents are Saying about this e-Book:
“I am very thankful God placed you (and your series) in my family’s life at this time. I was considering having my son’s eyes checked, but I was dragging my feet about it. After seeing how difficult the skewer/straw test was for him (the Purple Book), it really got me motivated to make the appointment. I wouldn’t have known where to look for a behavioral optometrist, so I’m glad you included the OEP website which has the database of eye doctors. It’s hard to believe that my son saw two different eye doctors and passed his pediatric eye exams without anyone knowing he had a problem! Crazy!” - Andrea LeRoy from Illinois

“Lesley brings something truly special to this project. In addition to her experience, she introduces very creative and enjoyable exercises, and if the child likes the exercises this really helps in making vision therapy a fun part of learning time. Her activities are very creative, from a learning point of view, and even a person who does not know much about vision could ascertain that the eyes need to move properly in order to do these games. Also, these games hold a child’s interest. I can tell you are an educator, with these activities.”  - Anne-Marie Jordan from Georgia
