Welcome to Parents Active for Vision Education (P.A.V.E.)


Parents Active for Vision Education P.A.V.E.®

After P.A.V.E.® was founded by Marjie Thompson, it grew nationally by the reciprocal support of parents and teachers with children in their homes and classrooms who had suffered the effects of undiagnosed vision problems. After years of searching for answers to their children’s learning problems, their children were finally diagnosed and successfully treated by a Developmental/Behavioral Optometrist through a form of treatment called VISION THERAPY!

P.A.V.E.® finds it unacceptable that children and adults continue to suffer needless frustration and failure because too often parents, educators, and medical professionals are unaware of the critical link between VISION and efficient learning.

P.A.V.E.® is a national non-profit education 501(c)3, resource and support organization whose mission is to raise public awareness of the crucial relationship between vision and achievement.

    Creating awareness among small age children is a great way to make our future generation more responsible towards their fitness. All the people should make awareness regarding this problem so that small age child will learn from us that we should try to keep our eyes neat and clean.

    I would like to share my story with you I was never able to read to my kids at the age of 55 I found out I had a vision problem the first day in my life I didn’t feel like a dumb. I went through 6 month of vision therapy and went from reading a 4th grade level to reading a 6th grade level. I had a book published in Dec. the title is Never Give Up…Beanie’s Story. I now have a web site if you would like to check it out http://www.beanieleffler.com I would like to share this book with any child going through vision therapy just to let them know how important all of this is to get through the therapy.
