When assessing vision and practising visual rehabilitation in the very young and/or handicapped child we need an instrument by which we might be able to use behavioural observation in appraisal of vision.
An ideal checking list should be both reliable and handy, supplying relevant information on visual ability. It should help in identifying children with visual impairments, particularly those difficult-to-test by other methods, and in assessing the degree and character of impairments of specific visual functions. It should also assist us when assessing the visual development during the course of visual rehabilitation.
In the paper general scientific criteria of behavioural methods are discuss as well as the actual checking list developed by the author together with the visual habilitation team at TRC.
