Eyes on Track ™ :
A Missing Link to Successful Learning

Lack of visual skills is one of, if not the primary cause of learning difficulties in children who appear to be otherwise normal. It is for this reason that Eyes On Track ™ is critical for education. By teaching the skills that gifted students use, educators have a better chance of creating better learners.

Have you or your child ever been insensitively labeled with learning disabilities? Have you ever been called:

  • Lazy
  • Slow Learner
  • Dyslexic
  • Juvenile Delinquent
  • Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
  • Working Below Potential
  • Immature
  • “At Risk”
  • Behavior Problem
  • Learning Disabled

Are you wondering why…

  • So many students are struggling in the classroom?
  • There is an epidemic of students with attention problems?
  • So many students get frustrated with reading?
  • Educators, home schoolers, and parents get frustrated?

Students are struggling and we need to find additional ways to promote classroom success!

Eyes On Track ™ is a practical (combination) manual and workbook that offers solutions to educators and home school teachers to improve 1) EYE TRACKING and 2) VISUAL-PERCEPTUAL SKILLS.

As a teacher, I have seen tremendous results in my students from improved vision skills; it is exciting to have Eyes On Track ™ ” activities to use in my classroom.
Alan Johnson, 3rd Grade Teacher


Once my son developed improved eye tracking and vision perception skills, he performed so much better in school and his self-esteem improved dramatically. He is a different person now; it changed his world!
Diane Sandoval, Parent

I have long awaited a book like Eyes On Track ™ that school professionals as well as parents can use to understand the nature of near vision problems and their effect on learning. This book goes even further in that it provides therapeutic techniques to be used in the classroom.
Wayne Padover, Ph.D., Superintendent of Schools


I recommend this book for all professionals and parents working with children who are academically-challenged. This book offers interventions for students who have their own style of learning.

VICKI BEDES, C.O.V.T., Certified Optometric Vision Therapist

Vicki began her career as a visual therapist in 1980 training with Dr. Leonard Emery, one of the pioneers in developmental vision. At the Vision Development Center in Laguna Hills, Ca., she worked intensely in orthoptics, which is the specialized use of instrumentation to affect changes in a patient’s visual system. There, she also gained experience in working with students with motor and visual-learning problems. Her special interest became the relationship between sensory-motor processing difficulties and learning.

In 1982, she started her speaking career as a presenter at the Regional California Vision Therapist Forum in San Diego. Her topics included:

Trampoline Techniques to Improve Directionality

Motor Testing for Children

She has also co-authored The Vision Therapist’s Toolkit with Tom Headline, COVT and Irene Wahlmeier, COVT.

In May, 2005, Vicki won the Lora McGraw Award for Outstanding Commitment and Contribution to Behavioral Optometry.With Dr. remick, she presents at many workshops, inservices , and conferences on “Vision and Meaningful Movement” and the importance of metronome work (timing and automaticity) in learning.

Vicki is currently working as a Visual Therapy Manager for Dr. Richard Borghi in Granite Bay, CA (the greater Sacramento area) where she is excited to work in co-treatment programs with physical, speech, and occupational therapists. She values the multi-disciplinary approach to therapy and strongly believes that, “it is time for ALL DISCIPLINES to identify and help those students with visual learning problems in the classroom.”

Vision Problems

There are millions of misdiagnosed students of all ages struggling with undetected near vision problems. Due to increased demands upon the visual system caused by computers, tablets, and small print in books this problem is getting worse!

These students may have 20/20 vision or have corrected prescription lenses and yet they exhibit symptoms of near vision problems. Here are common examples of behaviors that are tell tale signs of children who are trying to cope with this undiagnosed problem.

Near Vision: Face too close to the page.

Finger used as a pointer and closing one eye.

Covering an eye to focus better.

 

VISION IS A LEARNED SKILL

Much more than 20/20!Sight is the mere ability to see (i.e., eye chart in the doctor’s office), but true vision is the result of a person’s ability to understand and interpret (get meaning from) the visual information that comes to him through the eyes. Only when a person has efficient visual understanding abilities does he possess the “readiness skills” needed to fully benefit from classroom instruction. These visual foundations are critical!

Near vision is a learned phenomenon and educators are generally unaware of the potential problems that stem from poorly developed visual skills. Most educators have not received training in the field, but they need to be able to make the distinction between eyesight and near vision.
