Vision Development and Its Impact on Learning*

Our vision is what allows us to accurately identify and interact with objects in the material world. When someone suffers from a visual disability, they may experience problems processing what they see in a meaningful and reliable manner. During this presentation, Developmental Optometrist Dr. Prazer will explain how vision is developed, what vision tells us and how it impacts our ability to learn.

About the Presenter: Dr. Prazer is a Developmental Optometrist who has been involved in evaluating and treating visual dysfunctions since 1984. In 1990 he founded Pediatric and Adult Vision Care with the mission of providing full scope vision care in a patient friendly, professional setting. He expanded his practice after seeing an increasing need for developmental vision care and wanted to provide a place for children to develop the visual skills they need for reading and academics.

Julie asks Tsanko for his watch in order to present him with a new watch.  When it comes time to return it to him, she can’t find it. Things then take a decided turn.  Winner of 31 awards, this films emphasizes the exploitation of the weak and honest by the corrupt and the powerful.  The ideas for the story are based up two separate newspaper headlines weaved together.  Join us.

It is important to know how to avoid or prevent assault, but it is just as crucial to know how to physically and psychologically respond if a confrontation is unavoidable. Terry Valentino has been teaching karate and jiu jitsu for 45 years and has been counseling adolescent victims of trauma and abuse for 34 years.

During this 6 week seminar, he will teach important skills like situational awareness, managing fear and freezing, and defense against holding, choking, and striking.

Victoria & Abdul- A Drama from England (111 min)

This is an extraordinary true story of an unexpected friendship between a queen and her servant. At the Queen’s Jubilee, Abdul “accidently” makes eye contact with the Queen.  She wishes to see more of him. Abdul doesn’t know the court etiquette and strikes up a conversation with the Queen, starting their friendship.  As the Queen questions the constrictions of her position, her sense loneliness is lessened by the friendship Abdul gives. However, the Queen’s son and all those loyal to her question this because he is a servant, foreign and “black”.  He will make the monarchy look foolish.  This is an excellent period piece with beautiful costumes and photography.  The movie was also photographed at Osborne House, the royal residence of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

The Teacher- Drama from Slovakia (103 min)

Czechoslovakia 1983.  On the first day of class the new teacher, Ms. Drazdecova welcomes the students.  When she calls out their name, they respond by saying they’re here, and what their parents do for a living. The teacher is also a high ranking member of the Communist Party.  It soon becomes obvious that the kids grades are tied to how well the parents and students do their “extra” jobs. When some parents decide not to participate, their kids grades fall.  These parents take this up with the principal.  When a meeting is held and everything is brought to the attention of all the parents. Will they vote the teacher out of school, or are they scared of her?

It’s the summer of 1983, Elio and his family are spending time at their villa in Northern Italy.  Elio enjoys a cultured life.  His father teaches Greco-Roman culture, his mother is a translator, and he transcribes and plays music for the cello.  When not doing that he flirts with his friend Marzia.  When Oliver, his father’s intern, arrives to work on his doctorate, things change. Amid the sun-drenched splendor of the setting, Elio and Oliver discover the heady beauty of awakening desire over the course of a summer that will alter their lives forever. Beautifully shot and well acted, this movie has received 4 Oscar nominations.  The film has also won 62 awards and nominated for 134 more.
