What Teachers Can Do

Identify a vision problem, and you can impact a student’s ability to learn

 As a teacher, you’re carefully observing a child in situations in which visual skills are often challenged. Reading, writing, and processing visual information all require the entire visual system to be working well.

By observing a child’s behavior and identifying the telltale signs of vision problems, you can quickly identify a student who may need help. You’re also part of a team that evaluates learning disabilities, and your observations may help identify a vision problem that may be contributing a child’s poor performance.

Parents highly value your input and your observations. By recommending a child for a functional vision exam, you could significantly change a child’s life.
