seeing through new eyesSeeing Through New Eyes: Changing the Lives of Children with Autism, Asperger Syndrome and other Developmental Disabilities through Vision Therapy  by Melvin Kaplan and Stephen M. Edelson.

(XIN Kapla 2006)

This book provides an introduction to the treatment of visual dysfunction, a significant but neglected problem associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and other developmental disabilities. Dr. Kaplan believes that common ASD symptoms such as hand-flapping, poor eye contact and tantrums are typical responses to the confusion caused by vision disorder. The book gives guidance on how to: identify the visual deficits of nonverbal children, select prism lenses that will alter the visual field, and create individually tailored programs of therapy in order to retrain the system.
