New Eyes on Track

Eyes on Track Original Cover

Dr. Kristy Remick’s book Eyes on Track was originally published in 2000, and one of its co-authors was Vicki Bedes who also co-authored The Vision Therapist’s Toolkit.  In the ensuing eighteen years we have seen a number of books oriented toward educators and parents, all aimed at improving public awareness regarding visual abilities and learning.  Dr. Remick has a new edition of the book, with a new subtitle.  It is available through the book’s website in either paperback or digital e-book format.

  1. Glad this is back in print. We recommend it for workshops for teachers and for what we call a Classroom Visit. Teachers will want to know what they can do in the classroom to help the kids with learning-related vision problems. Rather than teach VT activities, we suggest reprinting some of the activities and teaching the teacher how to do them. It also allows differentiating VT from the Eyes on Track activities since you don’t use lensses, prism or filters. A really useful book for educators, particularly for the checklist. I’d provide a full copy to every teacher who refers and I’d also provide a laminated copy of the checklist because teachers never throw away anything that’s laminated.. A great way to revivify a teacher relationship. Don’t forget the private schools and home schoolers!

  2. Tom Lecoq Imitation is the highest form of flattery. Starting in the ’70s I would visit all teachers of all of my patients. We would discuss the very things that you suggest. Thanks.

    • Gosh, I thought I invented that. My late sister was a reading assistant in a local school district. She knew all about VT and referred often (I learned this MUCH later), and she inspired me to suggest then develop “Classroom Visits.” Very effective way to generate help for kids that otherwise would never be identified. A few years ago, we ran across a VT OD who held a 3 hour class for teachers on Saturdays. He obtained 3 hours of CE and charged $10, which went for a casual lunch where the real work was done handling referrals. Very effective approach to individual teachers. Converting a whole school district to referring is rarely successful, but doing it one teacher at a time works very well.
