Pediatric Vision Assessment: Detecting Visual Impediments to Learning and Development
Copyright :


There is nothing more frustrating than suspecting something might be wrong, but not being able to put your finger on it.  

Today’s children are falling through the cracks of the medical system with little to no support or appropriate follow up for vision related concerns.  What you don’t know about vision is costing you, costing your clients.  
This program gently introduces you to the critically important world of vision assessment for children.  From infants through to the school years, you’ll uncover the core concepts of vision development and testing including: 

  • What’s missing from common vision testing?  
  • Build your vision literacy!
  • Special age-based considerations for testing
  • Words jumping around on the page? Is it a reading problem, or an oculomotor problem? 

Understanding testing opens the door to understanding the various unaddressed elements of vision that are interfering with your client care. With the broad and deep impacts of vision on daily function – this knowledge will make an immediate difference in your stalled cases.
