THE USES AND ABUSES OF VISUAL TRAINING FOR CHILDREN WITH PERCEPTUAL-MOTOR LEARNING PROBLEMS.
CARLSON, PAUL V.; GREENSPOON, MORTON K.
THE ROLE OF THE OPTOMETRIST IN DIAGNOSING AND CORRECTING PERCEPTUAL-MOTOR LEARNING PROBLEMS IS DISCUSSED. ONE GROUP OF OPTOMETRISTS ADHERES TO STANDARD TECHNIQUES, INCLUDING THE PRESCRIPTION OF CORRECTIVE LENSES AND THE USE OF ORTHOPTIC TECHNIQUES FOR THE SAKE OF CLEAR, COMFORTABLE, AND EFFECTIVE VISUAL PERFORMANCE. OTHERS EMPLOY DIVERSE EDUCATIONAL AND SENSORY-MOTOR- PERCEPTUAL TRAINING FOR CORRECTION OF EDUCATIONAL PROBLEMS IN CHILDREN. A MULTIDISCIPLINARY TEAM FOR THE DIAGNOSIS OF MULTIPLE CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS IS THE BASIS OF A THIRD TREATMENT PROGRAM FOR LEARNING DISORDERS. THIS PLAN INCLUDED PSYCHOLOGY, EDUCATION, PEDIATRICS, AND NEUROLOGY. THE OPTOMETRIST INTEGRATES HIS FINDINGS WITH THE TOTAL DIAGNOSIS. DIAGNOSIS IS APPROACHED FROM THREE CLASSIFICATIONS--MAIN CAUSATIVE VARIABLES, DEVELOPMENTAL APPROACH AREAS AND SEQUENCES, AND SPECIFIC SENSE MODALITIES. THE MULTIDISCIPLINARY APPROACH SYNTHESIZES CLINICAL SERVICES WITH SCIENTIFIC VERIFICATION. THIS PLAN IS RECOMMENDED FOR EFFECTIVE REMEDIATION OF LEARNING DISORDERS. REFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. THIS DOCUMENT WILL BE PUBLISHED IN THE "JOURNAL OF OPTOMETRY." (MC)
