Warshowsky (pediatrics, State U. of New York State College of Optometry) offers a guide for parents and professionals to the use of visual therapy with children who have visual, motor, or auditory dysfunctions due to an inherent vision problem. He explains what happens to children when they are struggling with vision problems, the basics of vision in children, the difference between good eyesight and functional vision, what behavioral optometry is and when it is needed, how it can aid in learning and with learning disabilities, the role of the behavioral optometrist in the child study team, a combined vision and occupational therapy approach, and specific problems and interventions, such as lenses, strabismus, nearsightedness, and amblyopia.
