for SCHOOL VISION SCREENING
The following vision screening tests have been designed to investigate those most basic visual skills which a child must possess for satisfactory academic achievement.
Any room in the school, out of the mainstream of traffic, can be utilized for vision screening. The room should be a minimum of 15 feet x 15 feet. The personnel should consist of at least 1 school nurse (well trained in the background and relationship of visual skills to academic achievement) and 4 trained volunteer lay people recruited from the F.T.A. or Mothers' Club.
STATION 1 is called visual discriminations. This station is staffed by 2 volunteer lay people. The physical arrangement of this station should consist of a small table (for recording and placing similar test objects in front of the child) and a board 20" x 20" having mounted on it toy objects 2" in height. The toys should be familiar objects such as cars, spoon, knife, fork, dolls, etc. The toys should be placed in random order on the table in front of the child. The similar toys should be placed in random order on the board, 10 feet in front of the child. The toys on the table should match the toys on the test board, except in color, to avoid a possibility of color matching by the child. A 2" border should be left around the edge
