This is a beautifully written and remarkably useful book! See It. Say It. Do It! Dr. Hellerstein's work has been life-changing for hundreds of child I have referred to her over the last 25 years. Non-readers became avid readers; resistant writers embraced writing passionately; children who could not spell became competent spellers; and uncoordinated children became athletes. The key to their success was visualization.

Scientists, mathematicians, and artists have long recognized the power of visualization in making new discoveries and creating great works of art. Dr. Lynn Hellerstein clearly explains how visualization can bring out a child's creativity and improve performance in school, in sports and in life. The book is a must-read for parents and educators.

Dr. Hellerstein's considerable experience in using visualization to enhance the visual process as an optometric practitioner is the basis of this book. She provides her model of visualization and the means to implement it to foster success in school, athletics and other real life situations. This is done in a clearly written and well organized manner. Her target audience is parents and teachers. However, the contents of this book should be of significant value to other professionals who seek to improve the quality of life of their patients. These include optometrists, psychologists, physical and occupational therapists.

Janice M. McMahon, OD

Dr. Lynn Hellerstein sets an admirable and lofty goal in the introductory pages of her See It. Say It. Do It! action guide: "My mission is to make a difference in this world, empowering individuals by teaching them to explore their internal and external vision." And her attempts to do exactly that are bound together and offered in a text that should get some serious notice from parents and educators.
The scope of this book lies in exploring the techniques of using visualization as a tool to enhance a child's social and academic performance. It illustrates one model of visualization by defining three steps toward achievement of a goal. Step 1: Visualize (see it), Step 2: Declare (say it), and Step 3: Take action (do it).
The author emphasizes that in guiding a child through this process on multiple occasions and in a variety of situations, the child will eventually be able to set positive goals independently and work toward achieving them.
Dr. Hellerstein has incorporated visualization techniques into her office and at-home treatment modalities, and uses them in conjunction with vision therapy and other practices of developmental optometry. She advocates addressing the child as a whole and building their visualization potential just as one would their physical and academic potential. Her text may be used as a guide to the concept of introducing children to visualization.
This book is divided into four general topic areas - visualization and vision development, defining the See It. Say It. Do It! model, school readiness, and personal growth. Chapters within each topic area are filled with background, explanation, anecdotes, and many activities that allow the reader to experience Dr. Hellerstein's techniques as well as teach them to others. Visualization activities are given for school performance (spelling, writing, math, test-taking), homework, sports, music, and personal growth.
Reading this book, I was made more aware of the somewhat unconscious visualization techniques that I already use on a daily basis. The author's insights into systematically setting and achieving goals can certainly be transferred into adult life. The book, however, is absolutely geared toward children and the examples and activities are appropriate for preschool on up.
Being the parent of a kindergartener, I explored many of these activities with my child. I was gratified to discover that he does see pictures in his head when he reads or is read to (an early visualization skill and hopefully a sign of someone who will love the written word), and can certainly appreciate how visualization will open up more creative thinking and prepare him to tackle hurdles in school and in life. Many of the activities involve telling stories and using a child's imagination; some activities utilize math and spatial relationships, some include physical activity, and some are written. The concepts and benefits are clearly outlined and the occasional list, chart, or illustration further enhances the material. Constant conceptual reinforcement and timely cultural examples are used in each chapter. They serve as a teaching tool and make the tone of the book pleasurable and non-preachy. It is an easy book to read, and the stories and comments from patients who have completed therapy are positive and encouraging.
Dr. Hellerstein's conviction and enthusiasm for her subject matter are evident from the introduction of this book straight through to its conclusion. She has created a model in which children (and adults) are encouraged to take concrete steps toward visualizing and achieving their goals. I'm sure the author has already visualized the positive impact this will have on parents and teachers, and can attest that I, as both, have found it to be a useful resource and guide.
