Description of An Initial Study of Reading and Comprehension Rates for Students Who Received Optical Devices

Initial reading speeds across grades show points at which children with low vision are at risk of developing low literacy skills. Outcome group measures showed that children who received optical devices increased their silent reading speeds and comprehension rates. Findings indicate the provision of optical devices offer a benefit for deciphering text but not for the mechanics of reading.
