Vision Therapy


Some children with ASD experience difficulties related to visual-perceptual problems, or the means by which a person becomes aware of his body’s relationship to external space, or the relationship in space between one object and another (Kranowitz, 1998). Vision therapy is a process of retraining the visual-perceptual system so it functions with optimal efficiency.

The process follows a sequence of steps aimed at improving the visual system. Therefore, it is a procedure with therapy activities prescribed by the vision therapist which are carried out in the office, and frequently reinforced with home activities.
