In order to properly identify and therefore treat those children with visually related reading problems, an educational presentation was developed to help educate teachers and parents about this problem. Appropriate topics on the visual system were included to give a thorough educational background on this subject. This presentation and CD are included in the appendix section of this document and is available for anyone's use. Our hope is that by educating teachers and parents about this issue, children with visually related reading problems will be properly referred to optometrist's who can treat such conditions so that these children will be able to reach their full potential in school and later in the work environment.
