August is Vision & Learning Month Proclamations
Share |
August is Vision & Learning Month, and an important part of COVD's yearly awareness campaign is to encourage local and state governments to pass official proclamations highlighting the importance of children's vision for their success in school. 


Urge your local government to issue a proclamation for August 2016 to help raise awareness about the connection between vision and learning!
