“If your child is having difficulty moving their body, they ARE going to have difficulty in moving their eyes.” – Dr. Susan Daniel

Vision is one of the most neglected aspects of learning in Autistic learners AND students with ADHD or Down Syndrome!

If you are thinking, but I got my child checked for glasses” : I learned this this the hard way – so I am going to try to make it easier for you…

CHECKING FOR GLASSES / POWER / VISUAL ACUITY IS NOT ENOUGH. 

In fact, it is so far from enough, that stopping there can be damaging – in the sense that you are getting a partial and potentially false picture of what vision is doing for your child.

I asked a lot of questions that have been in my mind for a long time to Dr. Daniel in this podcast.

Most importantly, 
How does VISION impact BEHAVIOR and LEARNING?

This is an extremely important question, and in today’s podcast, Dr. Daniel and I discuss the types of visual impairments that can get in the way of learning

You’ll learn

  • Why specialized vision exams are crucial for children with autism, Down syndrome, and other disabilities

  • How vision difficulties can impact a child’s regulation and behavior, leading to frustration and anxiety

  • The components of Vision

  • What you can do right now to support your child’s learning

Onward,

Vaish
