How Does My Child's Vision Affect His Reading?
Eberly, Donald W.
Various eye problems and the effects they can have on children's reading abilities are explored in this pamphlet, which is one of a series designed to answer parents' questions about their children's reading development. Topics discussed are the demands on vision made by reading, problems that affect visual acuity (nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism), problems that result from refractive differences (double vision, crosseyedness, walleyedness, and accommodation), color blindness, identifying visual problems (symptoms and vision screening), and what parents can do in regard to their children's vision. An annotated bibliography of two books is provided, six reference books are listed, and questions for thought and discussion are included. (JM)
