...making a difference in your child's academic career

If you have any questions regarding this screening, please email Dr. Rua at:

Learning and vision are highly correlated. While the school system routinely checks vision, it is only checking your child's ability to see 20/20. There are many other visual factors that influence your child's ability to learn. This screening tool will help you to assess two areas of your child's visual learning integration: tracking and visual motor integration. The vision and learning handbook goes into great detail on these two areas and many others.


Tracking: the eyes ability to slowly and smoothly scan information while routinely

jumping quickly to the next line



Directions: Find the hidden alphabet in the paragraph below. Cross off the a and then

the b, and then the c. If your child cannot get to z, s/he either skipped a

letter or a line. This test should be done in under a minute.

Although this is not the standardized screening test, this will allow you to detect a
problem with children 12 years old and younger. There should not be more than
a ten degree shift of rotation.
