At Bay City Academy, we know that gifted learners are visual learners. Gifted learners can easily make pictures in their minds of what they are reading, instructions they are being given and consequences of their actions.
BCA staff members work to help all of our students learn like gifted learners learn. Integrated Visual Learning (IVL) is an optometric-based process developed by Dr. Steven J. Ingersoll, O.D. The IVL process combines vision procedure with cognitive processing drills and mental and motor skills. This combination creates a unique program designed to strengthen visual learning of students. Eighty percent of the information we receive is processed visually, so the better we learn visually, the higher our achievement.
