Staff of Head Start and early childhood programs screen vision of young children and it is important for these front-line screeners to understand the "why" behind vision screening (other than screening is mandated or a program offering).

This webinar, the first in a series from the Year of Children's Vision (YOCV) initiative, is to help front-line screeners understand the critical importance of vision screening in young children and which children should be referred for eye exams instead of first participating in vision screening.
