Journal of Behavioral Optometry
Volume 7/1996/Number 2/Page 39
The New York State Optometric Association Vision Screening Battery (NYSOA) was administered to 81 at-risk elementary, middle school, and high school students in order to rule out vision difficulties as contributing to academic difficulties and/or as to various determinations of attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyslexia or dyslexic, or oppositional-defiant behavior, etc. Thirty-three were classified as both academically and behaviorally at-risk. Ninety-seven percent of the students with behavioral problems failed at least one of the NYSOA subtests. A chi-square statistical analysis revealed that students who were academically at risk or behaviorally at risk scored significantly lower on the tracking, stereopsis, hyperopia, and color vision subtests. The results of this screening were also compared to several measures of academic achievement and subjective visual and academic assessment questionnaires. Key Words vision screening, attention deficit disorder, ADD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, ADHD, dyslexia, dyslexic, oppositional-defiant behavior, at-risk students, at risk students, problem behavior, disruptive behavior, hyperactivity, hyperactive, poor attention, reading problems, short attention span

Virtual Reality and "At Risk" Students
Chris Byrne, Catherine Holland, Deborah Moffit, Steven Hodas, and Thomas Furness
In our earlier work, we acknowledged that the students who were part of our summer camp did not necessarily represent students in general. These were children who were attending a $400 week-long day camp specializing in computers during their summer vacation. We were able to provide some scholarships due to the generosity of US West Communication, which helped the diversity of the student population, but overall we worked with students who had already expressed a strong interest in computers. Additionally, we knew that there are different ways to use VR as an educational tool. For example, we could present information first, and then have the students build their own world or we could build our own world and have the students learn from that. We wanted to at least discuss our options, even if we did not change anything. Finally, we realized that working with VR as a stand alone project could be different than using VR within a school subject.
For the second question, we had to decide on the manner in which to use VR as an educational tool. Our main schools of thought include: the students exploring an already built world (pre-fab); the students creating their own world on a 2-dimensional screen (such as a Macintosh) and then exploring it (Mac self-created); and the students creating their own world in VR and then exploring it (VR self-created). Although there has been very little study of the pros and cons of the different methods, we do have theories based on our experience with VR

Grouping and Seriation for At-Risk
(Hispanic) Preschoolers
In a recent study documented by he Journal of Experimental Education , Robert L. Rhodes and colleagues suggested the importance of programs based on classification and seriation. They contended that At Risk preschoolers would be better prepared for kindergarten and so forth when stressing such skills in addition to RstandardS curriculum including counting, alphabet, music, and crafts. The following is some of their suggestions.
  • Divide students into small groups (6 or less).
  • Allow students to work at their own pace.
  • When a student makes a mistake, give the correct answer and an explanation.
  • When a student gives a correct answer, ask for an explanation.
  • Emphasize Grouping
  • Present a group of 3 identical objects and 1 different
  • Ask which is different and why those remaining are the same
  • Present objects that are the basically the same but are slightly different, EX: 3 spoons- 1 facing a different direction
  • Repeat #2
  • Present different objects with the same functions
  • Ask what these objects have in common
    • Emphasize Seriation
  • Give students a group of objects and have them arrange the materials into a series or categories, EX: largest to smallest, by color

    19. The Performance Of At Risk Students
    AtRisk Students As Tutors. Thus it is no surprise when we look at the dataon cross-age tutoring projects using at-risk students as tutors.
    The Performance of At-Risk Youth As Tutors by Marty Duckenfield Public Information Director National Dropout Prevention Center Introduction In the United States, approximately one out of four young people leave school before attaining a high school diploma (Public High School Graduates, 1993). While the school completion rate has improved over the last 50 years, the changes in American society and the workforce requirements of its economy demand that the high school completion rate improve even more. The current level is detrimental to the nation's well-being and hope for economic growth since it is estimated that by the year 2000, 90 percent of all jobs in the United States will require more than a high school diploma (What Work Requires, 1991). In fact, some estimates show the jobs of the 21st century will require 14 years of education rather than 12. The National Education Goals Report, in fact, established in 1990 by then President George Bush and the nation's governors, includes as one of its goals that the high school completion rate be increased to 90 percent. (National Educational Goals Report, 1991). Portrait of Our Youth in At-Risk Situations Much research has been undertaken to identify the students who may drop out of school. Wells (1990) draws a clear picture of the many factors that describe these students we call at-risk. Included in her analysis are the following factors which relate to the student, the family, the school, and the community.
