School Vision Screening; Policies, Procedures, Practices.
Bishop, Virginia E.
A three-part study provides supportive data to reinforce a request for revision of Pennsylvania's school vision screening standards in order to properly identify visually limited children. The school vision screening policies of 35 states are surveyed in nine tables, and the problems involved in screening practices are discussed. The reactions of 18 special educators to the county and city level vision screening programs in Pennsylvania are presented, along with the responses of 44 school nurses to a questionnaire concerning the vision screening practices and procedures in Chester County, Pennsylvania. The results of the study indicate the necessity of developing a modified clinical technique, combined with the Snellen Test and teacher observation. Copies of the questionnaire forms are included.
