This chapter describes some of the methods used for testing vision in infants and young children in research and clinical assessment, including behavioural measures from observing eye movements (forced choice preferential looking /habituation), video/photorefraction, and visual evoked potentials (VEP) or visual event related potentials (VERP). It outlines how these methods have been used and compared, including the use of forced-choice preferential looking for acuity testing and acuity measures in preschool children using the Cambridge Crowding Cards, devised in the Visual Development Unit. It describes the subtests from the Atkinson Battery of Child Development for Examining Functional Vision (ABCDEFV), a behavioural battery which assesses children's functional use of sensory, perceptual, and cognitive vision, from birth to five years.

Keywords:   visual assessment, eye movements, visual acuity, preferential looking, habituation, functional vision, ABCDEFV, photorefraction, visual evoked potentials, visual event related potentials
