Young Children and iPAD Screen Time


American Academy of Pediatrics. “Give Your Child’s Eyes a Screen-Time Break: Here’s Why.” August 28, 2017. Date of Access: April 18, 2020.

Watching screens for long periods of time can cause symptoms such as eye fatigue, blurry vision, and dry eyes. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that parents monitor children’s screen time, that children take frequent breaks, remember to blink, check screen positioning and lighting, and that children get regular vision screenings.

Blue light from screens can cause eye strain and discomfort Kids’ slouched posture while viewing screens can cause neck strain, back pain, and headaches. Experts recommend that kids should use a pillow under the forearms to raise a tablet, so that they are not looking down.

Evidence shows that preschoolers, ages two to five, have the ability to transfer knowledge from screens to the real world, including early literacy and math, and positive social and emotional skills and behaviors. The AAP recommends no more than an hour a day of screen use for children ages two to five.

The United Nations Public Health Agency recommends only one hour a day of screen time for children ages two to four. Research out of the University of Washington highlights some of the benefits of screen time, including empathy, improving word learning, encouraging creativity, collaboration in family groups, and the ability to transfer problem-solving skills to the physical world.

Visual Dyslexia


Tsampalas, Evangelos; Dimitros, Sarris; Papadimitropoulou, Panagoula; Vergou, Maria; Zakopoulou, Victoria. “Learning Paths and Learning Styles in Dyslexia: Possibilities and Effectiveness—Case Study of Two Elementary School Students Aged 7 Years Old.” European Journal of Special Education Research, v3 n1, 2018, pp.25-41.

Difficulty in reading and writing, spelling mistakes, and poor speech are considered as the main factors characterizing students with dyslexia. The primary focus of the research study was to stress the contribution of early diagnosis of dyslexia in the creation of effective learning environments based on individual learning difficulties, learning styles, and learning paths. Different difficulties in the domains of memory, phonology, grammar, and syntax were studied and differentiated, along with the learning styles and strategies of each case.
