What is a Refraction Clinic?
Refraction Clinic evaluations are for students with low vision, exceptional needs, and multiple disabilities. Often, students are non-verbal.
It is a slower paced testing and examination clinic geared to the sensitivity and special needs of students.
This is a screening only, not to replace regular eye exams.
The purpose of a Refraction Clinic is to determine if glasses would be beneficial or if a change in prescription is necessary and provide information regarding functional levels of vision.
You will obtain information to assist in developing programming intervention for working with children who have special needs.
