Robert Lederman is a leader in the field of Developmental Optometry. He was Israel's first board-certified Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (www.covd.org), is a clinical associate of the Optometric Extension Program (www.oep.org) and is on the Professional Advisory Group of the Kabuki Syndrome Network ( www.kabukisyndrome.com/professional.html) He lectures extensively across the country to audiences ranging from teachers in special education attending a course recognized by the British Dyslexia Association, to the staff at the ergonomic department at Intel, Israel.
As a Developmental Optometrist, Robert Lederman needs to be familiar with the unique demands of different activities that people engage in on a daily basis. For example, he understands the vision skills required for reading, writing and spelling and how they differ from the vision skills required by a music student trying to sight-read the music.
As a board-certified Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development, Robert Lederman is required to commit to continuing education (CE). He travels across the world to attend conferences and reads the latest journals, bringing the most current knowledge available directly to benefit those who come to his office for a consultation. Robert Lederman understands how problems with our visual system can affect cognitive and motor function, as well as the unique visual demands of many different activities e.g. copying from the board, spelling, catching a ball or looking at a computer screen.
Robert Lederman is often invited to lecture about learning related vision problems. He is recognized as an authority in understanding the unique differences in visual demands and skills required when reading two different languages such as Hebrew and English. It is this knowledge that is turned into practice at LedermanVision where so many people find solutions to their vision-related problems, sometimes after years of being told that their vision is just fine.
