Natalie Barraga is the author of Increased Visual Behavior in Low Vision Children ( avg rating, 1 rating, 0 reviews), Visual Handicaps And Learning (/5(3). Some children’s behavioral problems in school can be attributed to undiagnosed vision issues.

Vision and learning are linked so strongly that if a child has an unknown visual obstacle, it can produce conduct such as: Inattentiveness – Short attention span, not paying attention in class Hyperactivity – Does not sit still, constantly moving and fidgeting.

Vision problems that affect learning are all-too-often overlooked or misdiagnosed. Eye exams conducted at your child’s school or by your family eye doctor typically only screen for the ability to see clearly at a distance; so it is possible for the results to show 20/20 vision without detecting an eye movement problem or visual processing deficiency.

Indicators of a Vision Impairment (Source: Children with Low Vision: A Handbook for Schools Elmwood Visual Resource Centre, Christchurch, New Zealand) Teachers need to be aware of the indicators that signal that a student has vision impairment.

Table 1 is a guide that you can use to identify whether a child in your class has a vision impairment. Children with low vision tend to struggle in this category as well. Also worth noting is how important vision is for early recognition of emotional cues.

Facial expression is a key means of communicating mood or intent. Children with low vision may have difficulty recognizing fine detail crucial to establishing emotional context.

Goal: The student will develop reading skills as supported by the following. Students with low vision have special educational needs that must be met by both special education as well as regular education teachers. These students may need low vision aids in order to better perform their schoolwork.

Teachers should consult with the student, parents, as well as the vision teacher to determine the best way to meet the visually impaired. Furthermore, intervention in graphic information processing may not be necessary for most children with low vision since the majority of these children are well within the range of their nonvisually impaired peers.

REFERENCES Barraga, N. Increased visual behavior in low vision children (Research Series No. 13). New York, NY. Visual processing is how the brain perceives and processes information that is seen through the eyes. Children who struggle with visual processing issues have trouble interpreting information with their eyes, but typically do not have impaired vision.

Children don’t always recognize the difference between shapes, letters, symbols and numbers. Children and adults with low vision are not considered legally blind, they simply have reduced vision at or lower than 20/ Students who are blind have vision that is at or lower than 20/ Nonetheless, only 15% of students with visual impairments are considered to be completely blind, with no light or form perception ability.

For educational purposes, the low vision student is typically one who reads print and has a corrected visual acuity of 20/70 or worse in the better eye. Most low vision students have very poor distance vision, so this makes it difficult for them to see the chalkboard or to gather detailed information from filmstrips, charts, or overhead screens.A child needs many abilities to succeed in school; good vision is key.

Reading, writing, chalkboard work and using computers are among the visual tasks students perform daily. A child's eyes are constantly in use in the classroom and at play.

When his or her vision is not functioning properly, education and participation in sports can suffer.
