Does Vision Therapy Work for Kids with Autism?

Posted: Wednesday, March 17, 2010 - 10:00


Judith Warner of the New York Times recently wrote a long and well-researched article on Vision Therapy for use with children. She spoke with parents of children with autism and other developmental disabilities. She also spoke with pediatric optometrists and behavioral optometrists, specifically, Stanley A. Appelbaum. Appelbaum and vision therapists believe that eyes working well in coordination with other parts of the body help the child in all areas of learning and emotions. He says, “Vision isn’t just about eyes or eyesight but is also something more holistic — how eyes work together and move together and process information and store information and do something with the information.” There is not yet much evidence-based research for vision therapy, but as one mother says, “Vision makes sense.” She has a daughter with autism who has spent a lot of time being told that therapies she has found to work, are not supposed to.
