The Visual Screening of Adjudicated Adolescents
The purpose of this study was to determine particular visual factors that are most responsible for the learning difficulties of juvenile offenders.
This was a randomized control trial study of 50 adjudicated adolescents and 54 graduates.
48% of juvenile offenders failed the tracking subtest, while all graduates students passed.
A greater number of juvenile offenders failed visual acuity-near, convergence, hyperopia, and colour vision.
74% of juvenile offenders failed at least 1 NYSOA Battery subtest, compared to 59% of graduate students.
More graduate students failed visual acuity–far and fusion subset.
