Functional Vision: Learning to Look

Resource Type



"This videotape was developed with input from parents, doctors, educators, and vision specialists. It shows examples of what it is like to see with different visual impairments. It reminds the viewer that parents are often the first to notice problems and progress, and covers information parents and educators need to know about visual skills. The program discusses 1) the six voluntary visual behaviors we all use to see, 2) how vision develops, 3) ways to use color and contrasting backgrounds, 4) the relationship between the eye and the brain, and 5) how typical times and places can be used to practice looking behaviors." -Children Development Media, Inc.
