Development of a screening procedure to detect visual anomalies which may be contributing to learning disabilities in college-level students

1 January 1980


The relationship between vision and learning has been reported by many authors in the optometric literature. Although not always in agreement as to how this relationship occurs, the fact that a relationship does exist has been the majority opinion. A short discussion of this relationship is presented along with examples of screening procedures which have been used to detect specific visual anomalies. Finally, a screening sequence developed by the author will be presented and the results of its use on twenty- four college-level students at the Pacific University Study Skills Center will be shown in tables and discussion.
