Learning-Related Vision Disorders
ADD & ADHD
Children on the autism spectrum have a higher rate of visual deficits than the general population. We work successfully with many moderate to high functioning children and adults on the autism spectrum to enhance their quality of life and performance ability. Visual deficits in both shape and space perception are common in this group and can frequently be remediated through vision therapy. Toe walking may often be alleviated with special rehabilitation yoked prism glasses. Patients in this group also often respond well to Intuitive Colorimeter tinted lenses. Temple Grandin endorses vision therapy for patients with spectrum disorders.
