VisionHow do you see things?<br />My vision is to see and share a world of color and a world of clarity. <br />With the following training participants will realize the importance of vision <br /> Value and care for their eyes and embrace the sense of sight in others, especially children.<br />
Prevention+ Care=Mission<br />To train those interested in a process that can identify weakness and prevent blindness.<br />To become recertified in vision training.<br />To make appropriate referrals to a full exam with an ophthalmologist or optometrist.<br />
Train vision screeners.</li></ul>Application-How do you focus and apply what you see?<br />
Vision guides our movement and directs our paths bothnear and far.<br />
Overview<br />This capstone project is a follow-up project for graduate work at Walden University and course 6190.<br />Resources will follow systematic research from the Prevent Blindness North Carolina, Council for Exceptional Children, and the Journal of Learning Disabilities.<br />For Design purposes, my primary choices are to apply Microsoft Office, YouTube, Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat Suite 4.0 and SlideShare.<br />
Overview<br />For Communication I plan to share these slides with SlideShare.<br />Theories of Multiple Intelligence as well as theories of learning styles will enhance instructional applications.<br />Format used is Microsoft Word.<br />Print will be adapted according to page and content visibility. <br />
Testing Charts and Materials<br />Which tests are used in vision screening?<br /> Snellen Test-distance vision testing<br />Rosenbaum Pocket Vision Screening for near vision testing<br />Lea Symbols for testing at ten feet<br />Letter E for younger children<br />Stereopsis Testing for colorblindness<br />
Identify common diseases/conditions<br />Stabismus (Misalignment)<br />Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)<br />Anisometropia and Antimetropia<br />Problems with near vision<br />Problems with far vision<br />Blindness-(one eye, both eyes)<br />Diseases and Conditions<br />
Most states require screening.<br />Prevention is the key and should start at preschool level.<br />Medicaid pays for screening but only 28% take advantage.<br />Only 2/3 children are identified which leaves one child at risk for blindness.<br />Research<br />
Compare and Link!<br /> An article that calls attention to research regarding visual attention can be found in the Journal of Learning Disabilities- “Is there a Common Linkage among visual attention and magnocelluar processing”<br /> (Solan, Temray Hansen & Larson, 2007<br />
Vision is a major factor and essential for a child to read and write.<br />
Visual Attention<br />Visual Attention has a great influence upon whether a child can read and write. <br />Attention is given for other tests that may be applied to visual attention to numbers<br />An article that calls attention to research regarding visual attention can be found in the Journal of Learning Disabilitie-Is there a Common Linkage among visual attention and magnocelluar processing”(Solan, Temray Hansen & Larson, 2007)<br />
