The Year of Children's Vision
Presenting the Year of Children's Vision (YOCV)
The Year of Children’s Vision is an exciting, one-of-a-kind collaborative effort to support the vision health of children in Head Start and early childhood programs across the United States.
UPCOMING YEAR OF CHILDREN'S EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES:
Join us at the 30th Annual Parent Conference & Family Engagement Institute, December 9-12th at the America’s Mart Conference Center, Atlanta, Georgia. Session overview:
Children’s Vision: Building Blocks for a Great Vision Screening Program!
Common vision impairments affect 5 to 10% of preschool-aged children. If not detected and treated early, vision impairment could negatively impact a child’s ability to learn, athletic performance, and self-esteem. This panel session will provide information about the importance of vision for early communication, screening vision for common early childhood vision disorders, using appropriate tools and methods, accessing eye care and engaging families, and the NHSA “Year of Children’s Vision.”
