Some quick links for this Monday morning (well, it’s not actually morning anymore where I am, but I tried..)
- Strabismus Survey – Kristal Wheaton is a mother of a boy with accommodative esotropia, she’s also a student at CSU East Bay in the Human Development Department. For her senior capstone research project, she’d like to look at strabismus from a developmental perspective. The survey is quick (I just completed it for Zoe), and asks whether your child can do certain tasks. If you have a child with strabismus, please consider taking a moment to complete the appropriate survey, responses are due on Thursday, May 24. You can also read more in her informed consent document. Here’s the links to the surveys:
- Article on reading: “the great iceberg aka learning to read” – this link was posted by a friend on facebook, and I found it to be a fascinating explanation of many of the pieces that kids need to understand and master before reading. It was especially interesting to look at it through the lens (pun intended) of children’s vision – if a child’s vision isn’t corrected, many of these pieces become so difficult. This is a good piece for those of us who get the question of why a child who doesn’t read might need glasses (yes, I’ve gotten that question, and yeah, it made me mad). I wrote more about it over at the Great Glasses Play Day.
- Vote for the Great Glasses Play Day logo – today is the last day to vote for the logo for the Great Glasses Play Day. If you vote, you can be entered in a drawing for a free t-shift featuring the winning logo!
