Description of The Effectiveness of Two Programs to Develop Visual Perception in Spanish Schoolchildren with Low Vision



Abstract: This study compared improvements in the visual function of a group of 20 Spanish children with low vision, aged 4 to 6 years. The children were divided into four groups: Barraga and Morris program, Frostig program, placebo control, and untreated control. Since all the children showed significant improvements, regardless of the treatment or control procedure used, the authors concluded that the treatment programs were not effective, at least with the children they studied. The increases in visual efficiency and acuity probably reflected the normal effects of maturation, schooling, or both, in these children.
