2014 NHSA Annual Conference

The Year of Children’s Vision is pleased to provide you with this series of presentations from the 2014 NHSA Annual Conference designed to bring excellence to your vision screening and eye health programs! Learn from nationally recognized eye care providers and public health leaders the information you need to develop and implement a strong, 12-component, Vision Health System of Care- even when vision screening is conducted by volunteers or outside agencies. This series of presentations includes (1) critical questions to answer about vision development in Early Head Start and other birth to 3 programs, (2) considerations for children with special health care needs, (3) results of the NHSA national vision screening survey, and (4) how parents want to be engaged in follow-up eye care for their children.

This panel session will provide information about the importance of vision for early communication, screening vision for common early childhood vision disorders, using appropriate tools and methods, accessing eye care and engaging families, and the NHSA “Year of Children’s Vision.”
