CONTRIBUTIONS OF VISION SCIENCES.
SPACHE, GEORGE D.
THE IMPLICATIONS OF RESEARCH IN THE VISION SCIENCES FOR READING INSTRUCTION ARE DISCUSSED ON THE BASIS OF (1) STUDIES ON THE PERCEPTUAL BEHAVIOR OF CHILDREN AND THE EFFECT OF LANGUAGE DIRECTIONALITY ON PERCEPTION, (2) STUDIES ON VISUAL CHARACTERISTICS, (3) STUDIES ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN MOTOR COORDINATION AND READING ABILITY, (4) LONGITUDINAL STUDIES ON CHILDREN'S VISION, AND (5) STUDIES ON VISUAL PERCEPTION. THESE INVESTIGATIONS HAVE RESULTED IN MORE CAREFUL VISION SCREENING, FURTHER INVESTIGATION OF THE EFFECT OF VISUAL TRAINING PROCEDURES FOR CORRECTING FUNCTIONAL DIFFICULTIES, AND MORE ATTENTION FOR THE PERCEPTUAL HABITS OF DIFFERENT TYPES OF READERS. HOWEVER, IMPLEMENTATION IN CLASSROOM PROCEDURES AND INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS IS STILL NEEDED. STUDIES ON VISUAL PERCEPTION OFFER JUSTIFICATIONS FOR THE USE OF THE WHOLE METHOD IN BEGINNING READING AND THE SYNTHETIC METHOD IN LATER STAGES, AND FOR PROVIDING THREE-DIMENSIONAL EXPERIENCES DURING BEGINNING READING. THESE STUDIES ALSO RELATE TO TWO PROBLEMS IN READING INSTRUCTION -- (1) THE EFFECT OF DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES ON PERCEPTUAL BEHAVIOR, AND (2) HOW TO ADAPT INSTRUCTION TO PRODUCE DESIRABLE PERCEPTUAL PATTERNS. BIBLIOGRAPHIC DATA ON STUDIES CITED ARE INCLUDED. THIS PAPER WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE 1967 YEARBOOK OF THE NATIONAL READING CONFERENCE. (NS)
