Services for Children
One in every ten preschoolers have an undetected vision problem. Early intervention is crucial in preventing minimum vision loss. Our agency conducts more than 1,000 child vision screenings annually, referring 8% or more for further testing. Finding many of these vision problems early, ensures that the child does well in school and throughout adulthood.
Children Education Programs
Teaching children in schools how to protect their eyes, and exposing them to the abilities and talents people with vision loss have are ways that we provide education for children. Below are two programs for children:
C. Well Bunny Goes to School– An interactive program designed to introduce eye health and eye safety to preschoolers. Through this program, little learners will begin to understand the importance of their eyes, and remove any fears the children might have about the screening process.
Reckless, the Seeing Eye Dog –
Join Reckless as he teaches children about safety precautions while playing. Children will also learn about eye sun safety. Presenters read the Reckless story using a story book, visual aids, and a large stuffed dog to symbolize Reckless. After the story the children will be screened for vision problems. Contact the Fayette County Association for the Blind if you would like to see this program at your school.
