In order to promote the recognition of visual dysfunction in the classroom, a presentation has been designed for optometrists to give to educators in a lecture and slide format with demonstrations. The behavioral definition of vision is the basis of the presentation, which also includes a discussion on vision development, visual symptoms in the classroom, vision screenings, and vision therapy. Extensive research is cited to support each point made. Slides and hand-outs will follow in another thesis project.
