The world's largest faculty of psychology”
Delving into the fundamentals of learning and the involvement of the visual system in its proper development will give you the keys to early detection of children with visual impairment"
The correct development of learning during the school stage is influenced by different factors. One of the most important is to have good visual health, which allows students to perceive in detail all the stimuli involved in their pedagogical evolution. However, there are situations in which the lack of diagnosis in children suffering from ocular pathologies or visual dysfunctions seriously affects their school performance.
For this reason, psychology specialists must know how to recognize these cases in order to establish an action protocol that benefits the infant and helps them to follow a school and life rhythm according to normality. On many occasions, keeping up to date with the latest developments in the fundamentals of learning, school performance and the implication of the visual system in its correct development is a very complicated task for specialists due to the lack of qualifications that adapt to their time availability.
