Vision Problems and Autism (ASD)

While autism and vision problems are separate medical issues, they are often comorbid and symptoms can overlap, which may make it harder to tell if a child has a vision issue along with autism. Vision therapy treatment for these vision issues will not correct autism, but alleviating these problems can help significantly.

Vision Therapy for Down Syndrome

Down syndrome is another disability which people do not immediately link with vision problems. However, here, as well, vision issues can be impacting a child with down syndrome, exacerbating their other problems. Correcting these vision issues can significantly help improve their quality of life.

Non-Verbal Learning Disorder

Non-verbal learning disorder, while not an officially diagnosed problem like autism, ADHD, or down syndrome, is a learning disability which is also often found alongside vision issues which can play a major role in the problems suffered by a child with this condition.

Summary

Vision problems are extremely common in children with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and non-verbal learning disorder.

In addition to helping people with learning-related vision issues, vision therapy can also help improve the quality of life for people who are neurodiverse. These include people with autism, down syndrome, cerebral palsy, and non-verbal learning disorder.

While these problems are not caused by vision issues, neurodiverse people often do have vision issues which, if corrected, can significantly improve their quality of life. As with many other vision issues in which certain skills are lacking, vision therapy is a great treatment option.

The resources below serve as a starting point for learning about these various issues, how vision problems tie into them, and how vision therapy can help.

Testimonials


  • Vision therapy is well worth the response, time and effort. Our Son had a hard time focusing and writing neatly. After vision therapy Seth could complete a task in half the time if previously took. His abilities to focus improved greatly and so did his handwriting.

    Also, he was better at listening. As a parent, we wanted learning to be fun for our Son, and vision therapy made this possible.

  • Vision Therapy has given or son the tools he needs to be able to scan and read the written word more effectively and efficiently.

    He love working with John and these working sessions give him the motivation to gladly work on his homework assignments.

    It amazed us to see the difference in the tracking of his eyes and along a line of it's from the beginning to the end of the treatment.

    Dr. McBryar , Kristen and John  are all marvelous and we would recommend them to anyone I only wish that we would have found them sooner!

  • Prior to coming to the institute for vision development my son complained of daily headaches. Therapy has eliminated his headaches completely. I love knowing my son is able to learn pain-free for the rest of his life because of the work that has been done over just a few weeks in this office. He he absolutely loved coming that didn't even feel like going to a doctor or therapy. We are grateful for the relief he was able to find by coming here.

    Thank you!
