This book provides a comprehensive overview of vision problems in children with developmental disabilities such as AD/HD, autism spectrum disorders, and specific learning disabilities.

Written in a very accessible style, it is appropriate for parents and professionals alike and offers non-technical explanations of how vision difficulties are screened for and advice on where to seek appropriate professional care. Lisa Kurtz outlines a range of activities for strengthening children’s functional vision and perceptual skills using simple, homemade materials that are readily available in the home or classroom.

This is an excellent practical companion for parents of children with visual perception problems and the professionals who work with them.



Introduction. 1. Anatomy and Structure of the Visual System. 2. The Early Development of Visual Skills. 3. Do You See What I See? Problems with Visual Skills. 4. Finding Professional Help for Problems with Vision. 5. Activities for Improving Visual Skills. 6. Helping Children to Compensate for Problems with Vision. 7. Resources. Appendix: Equipment Fabrication. Glossary. Index.



This short book is a reliable introduction to a complex area of need which is all too often masked by a child’s other, more obvious difficulties. The practical suggestions provide useful starting points for both specific visual difficulties and general visual development. This book is a good reminder that it is crucial for parents and practitioners to promote alternative activities that provide opportunities for children to practice and develop their visual skills.
