I shared why in my post and offered easy ways you can help get your child socially and emotionally ready for school - http://www.momto2poshlildivas.com/2014/06/kindergarten-social-and-emotional-development.html

How does the visual system contribute to sensory processing?  What is this complicated system?  What are some activities to support it?

What are some activities to promote a healthy visual system?    +Dayna Abraham from +LemonLimeAdventures offers a parent's perspective.
