Fortunately, there are changes in the classroom—called accommodations—that can remove these barriers.
Read on to learn more about what accommodations are and how they can help your child.
When moving focus from a distant to a near object, the eyes converge.
The ciliary muscle constricts making the lens thicker, shortening its focal length.
It also includes the supraoculomotor nuclei (located immediately superior to the oculomotor nuclei) that generates motor control signals that initiate the accommodation response and sends these control signals bilaterally to the oculomotor complex.
Kids with learning and attention issues often face barriers to learning.
When the eye focuses on distant objects, the lens holds itself in a flattened shape due to traction from the suspensory ligaments.
The medial rectus is innervated by motor neurons in the oculomotor nucleus and nerve.
This limb includes Edinger-Westphal nucleus and the oculomotor neurons.
The main function of the Edinger-Westphal nucleus is to send axons in the oculomotor nerve to control the ciliary ganglion which in turn, sends its axons in the short ciliary nerve to control the iris and the ciliary muscle of the eye.
Three reactions occur simultaneously; the eyes adduct, the ciliary muscles contract, and the pupils become smaller.
This action involves the contraction of the medial rectus muscles of the two eyes and relaxation of the lateral rectus muscles.
