American Journal on Mental Retardation, v106 n2 p145-50 Mar 2001
Assessment of visual acuity, using Teller Acuity Cards, was combined with observations of behavioral state to indicate central nervous system activation in 24 individuals with mental retardation. Results indicate that forced-choice preferential-looking technique can be used to test visual acuity in this population unless the participant is drowsy. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
