The Pupil Project is an innovative program that brings together the resources and expertise of the University of Missouri-St. Louis College of Optometry and College of Education faculty to manage learning related vision problems. The Pupil Project incorporates a multidisciplinary team of optometrists, school psychologists, special educators and physical therapists. The Pupil Project provides optometric, psychological and educational clinical evaluation, diagnosis and remediation for children with learning related vision problems. These multidisciplinary activities are performed concurrently following discussion among team members. Parents are consulted and management plans developed for each child referred to the project. A strength of the program is the reporting of relevant suggestions to teachers for implementation in the classroom.
