Petition for an Additional Vision Developmental Milestone
Del Frari, Paul
Online Submission, Journal of Modern Education Review v2 n1 p47-55 2012
This petition is about two of the traditional three R's - reading, writing, and arithmetic; it concerns learning letter formation and learning to read, both of which require continuous interplay between the different perceptual attunements of central and paracentral areas of the retina. This interplay, managing the field of view between zooming-in for precise discrimination of detail and zooming-out to acknowledge properties of its context, is the substance for an additional vision developmental milestone. Inclusion of this milestone in vision assessment will contribute to improved teaching strategies by better defining the separation of visual perception from visual perception with the additional matter of prior learning attachments to it. (Contains 5 figures.)
