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.

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.
