Identifying and supporting economic needs of families with visually impaired children, including children with cerebral visual impairment
Professor John Ravenscroft is Chair of Childhood Visual Impairment.
There has been debate in the literature about the exact role socioeconomic status has on vision impairment and one question (of many) that still remains to be answered as the literature seems to be undecided is around the issue of whether vision impairment is more prevalent in lower socioeconomic areas than more affluent areas and if so why? This short presentation will look at the effect of social deprivation and vision impairment and will use data gathered from different sources within Scotland to look at some of the outcomes with respect to education and qualifications. The presentation will also examine the incidence of cerebral visual impairment within different socioeconomic groups again using data gathered within Scotland.
Dr. Pooja Desai is MHA, DOMS, MBBS.
